TINY TOWN, Colo. -- This year, Tiny Town turns 100 years old.

Nestled in Morrison just off of U.S. 285, the charming, miniature village began in 1915 by businessman George Turner. He started making the little houses for his daughter, who had tuberculosis.

Soon he opened it to the public and the magic lives on. Tiny Town has had a hard 100 years, having parts of it destroyed in floods and fires over the years.

But somehow the town always seems to survive, being rebuilt and resurrected time and time again. Generations of families have been enjoying the teeny houses and train rides for a century and it shows no signs of slowing down.

There are events taking place nearly every weekend through the end of summer.  See the event calendar for times.
