Alma began as a mining settlement and was officially founded in 1873, most notable for its designation as the highest incorporated town in North America at 10,578 feet. The Alma Town Hall was first constructed as the Alma School in the 1920s to support the growing population of this small mining community. Additions were constructed on the north and south sides of the building in the 1930s to accommodate new classrooms as well as an auditorium. The school operated in this building until the early 1960s when it was deeded over to the town. Today, the former school serves not only as the town hall but also as a community gathering place for events like bingo and holidays meals. Inside, you will find displays of local minerals as well as the town library, which is staffed completely by volunteers.
