As we worked on this website, we realized that there is such a wealth of information and just plain interesting facts about Cobalt, that we just could not put it all here. We can however, try to lead you in the right direction.
It seems that every day, I find out more about my hometown that simply astonishes me. Retiring here after having been away for some time, I am rediscovering Cobalt.
When friends come to visit from out of town, I tour them around to our museums, take them to a production at our fabulous Classic Theatre or out to the various mine sites that loom largely over the landscape. They are in awe, as am I.
This is a wonderful town, with wonderful people, an unequalled quality of life and plenty of opportunities for individuals wanting to try their hand at small business. The last couple of years, a few individuals have started their small enterprise here in Cobalt, not because they wanted to be rich or famous, but because the town offers them a chance at earning a respectable living while all the while affording them the time and circumstance to enjoy life.
No one ever leaves Cobalt. They may have to move away for one reason or another, but they never leave. The once famous Cobalt song states it clearly. “Cobalt, Cobalt, the best old town I know, if you don’t live there it’s your fault.”
Do come for a day and discover a century!!
