Back In The Day, This Quiet Colorado Town Was A Mafia Mecca
Seeing as though I am really in touch with the times, I recently discovered the HBO hit “The Sopranos” and have been watching an episode or two every night after my husband and sons fall asleep. While the Soprano family and their world of crime seems so fake and far away, it got me wondering if Colorado has any famous ties to the Mafia. After doing a little digging, I found out that the Centennial State has a long history of mob activity, including the infamous “Denver Crime Family.”
To get an even more in-depth look at this often overlooked time in Colorado history, check out this fascinating episode of Colorado Experience from Rocky Mountain PBS:
Annie is a freelance writer, content editor, and marketing whiz with a background in broadcasting and a passion for chicken nachos. When she isn't gushing about her love of Colorado, you can find her chasing after her two adorable sons and/or dreaming up a new home improvement project for her husband.
