The Palisade Historical Society


The Palisade Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and communicating the unique history of this small, Western Colorado town which was settled in the 1890s and incorporated in 1904. 

Digitizing The Palisade Tribunes

Another important project has been our work with preserving, digitizing, and adding issues of The Palisade Tribune, our newspaper of record from June 6, 1903 to March 2014 to the Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection database. It is free to search the database, and we continue fundraising to get as many of the remaining issues on the database as possible.

You can even search the database from here!
