Among the many goals of the Superior Historical Commission is the preservation of local history and the imparting of that history to residents of Superior. Consequently, the Commission undertook the writing of the Superior Historian which is a quarterly publication that Superior residents have received in the Town’s monthly newsletter since 2003. The Commission invites you to explore the past issues of the Superior Historian at this site and welcomes questions and comments. You are also invited to attend a meeting of the Superior Historical Commission on the third Friday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Superior Town Hall. You can make contact with Town Liaison, Bryan Meyer, at 303-499-3675.
