A comprehensive and interactive source of reliable information on the state of Colorado, organized around six themes–origins, diversity, community, ecology, political economy, and place. By September 30, 2016, the Colorado Encyclopedia will include 500 entries, approximately 25 percent of which will be available at 4th-, 8th-, and 10th-grade reading levels and include Annotated Resource Sets for educators.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed on this site do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities and by a History Colorado State Historical Fund grant. The content and opinions contained herein do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of History Colorado.
Educators at all of the state’s schools, colleges, and universities now have a vetted online resource for all things Colorado that will grow and improve over time. In addition, by accepting article contributions from the public and collaborating with local writers, museums, historical societies, libraries, and educators, the Colorado Encyclopedia allows Coloradans to tell the story of the Centennial State, instead of leaving that to Wikipedia or the random results of a Google search.
