Everyone interested in Colorado history or in the labor movement or in the current plight of Working Families should stop and experience this Memorial. At least twenty-three men, women, and children were massacred here. It is just a hundred yards or so off the interstate so there is no good excuse for not stopping here.

Doesn't stand out like it should, if you cross the railroad tracks, you have gone too far. Great memorial to a tragic time in Colorado history. The UMWA did a good job preserving this site.

I gave this a 3 rating as I felt it would be hard to find for those who don't live in the area. Needs more signs showing where it is as on I-25 a single sign says Ludlow Massacre and that is about it traveling on the interstate. Otherwise, I would have given a 4 rating. Very somber atmosphere, especially... More

After reading here we had to visit the site. Very interesting and sad to read what happened here. Very nice area and preserved. Drove to the little town or what is left. Too bad no one is preserving this history. Well worth the afternoon drive.

I visit Ludlow often. I grew up in the area and I know the history too well. The lives that were lost at Ludlow deserve to be remembered and honored. The lone monument that stands at Ludlow over the door to a tiny cellar tells a story of the men women and children (mostly babies) who were burned alive inside... More

This site was involved in the coal war fought early in the 20th century between the miners and big business( JD Rockefeller). It is the site where the Colorado Militia killed close to 30 people many of whom were women and children.It is well maintained

I knew the story of the massacre. and had driven by here thousands of times. One day I had a little extra time and went in. The sculpture is very nice , have not seen it since it was repaired from degenerates damaging it . It is well worth the stop.

Saw this when looking for shortcut through the mountains. Nice little peace of History. Place is out of the way and little run down. I think volunteers run and keep it clean. Good job.

Took enough time to visit this monument out of curiosity more than anything. Was not sure of what the Ludlow Massacre as all about. Kept seeing signs on the highway. This is a monument in honor of coal miners and family being killed in a tent city. Probably means more to locals and to those with coal mining and mine... More
