17 Tabor faced a hard choice in leaving a paying claim, albeit in declining California Gulch, to follow the golden goddess to another untried digging. The lure of mining now was obviously in his blood, for he packed his furniture, supplies, and merchandise, and migrated. " They were no longer poor and would not Page 27 be again, moving now in the respectable upper social class of mining camp society. 18 Despite the newfound wealth, no thought was given to returning to Kansas; the Tabors had come to Colorado to stay.

His accomplishments in politics, in building up Colorado, and in advancing mining were such that they need to be clarified and analyzed, if only to produce a clearer understanding of the state and its development during Tabor's era. Today it is virtually impossible to catch the physical feeling of the era in which Tabor lived, except perhaps at Leadville. Here, situated on the slopes of hills draining down to the Arkansas River and surrounded by mountains over which towers Mount Elbert, Colorado's highest, in the town that Tabor knew so well, there still stand buildings where he worked and played; on the nearby hills are the ruins of mines he once developed into some of the greatest in the United States.
