Victor Hall

victor-hall-blogThe Victor, Colorado Union Hall was dedicated in March 1901.  It became the site of a pitched shoot-out on June 7, 1904.

Western Federation of Miners members barricaded themselves inside, under attack by anti-union forces.  When the union men ran out of ammo, they surrendered. Many were later deported to Kansas and New Mexico.

The building later was used as a city school facility.  Today, a year after a fire nearly destroyed it; the hall is the subject of a major restoration effort.
