Rex Theatre Curtain
The painted theater curtain, sporting ads from local businesses of the times, hangs in the Historical Museum, until recently accompanied by decades of accumulated dust and grime. A local fine arts restorer, Lisa Capano, completed cleaning of the curtain in mid-August, and you can see the difference in the before and after from this partially cleaned segment. Lisa also restored the antique safe that is now on display at City Hall and is shown in the rotating photo banner at the top of this page. Stop by the Museum to see the rejuvenated curtain!

One of Colorado's 2016 Most Significant Artifacts!

The votes are in! The Louisville Historical Museum is honored that its Rex Theatre curtain has been selected as one of Colorado’s "Ten Most Significant Artifacts in 2016."

Thank you to everyone who supported the Museum's and City's efforts to preserve our local history!
