10th Annual Historic Tour
On Saturday, September 14th, we will return to the past to experience Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park just the way tourist visitors did nearly a century ago, in the two decades after the 1915 Park dedication. After an illustrated talk by Jim Pickering, Estes Park’s Historian Laureate, we will board “touring” buses and begin our day of historic exploration, visiting six sites with stops at a dozen more.
The tour will be limited to 120 people. Limited number of tickets left!!
Participants will meet at the Museum at 8:30 a.m. for the slide show and informative talk by Pickering who will prepare the viewers for what they will see on the bus tour. Included are refreshments, admission to Rocky Mountain National Park, transportation, a copy of the booklet This Was Estes Park and a catered box lunch. Tickets are $75 for non-members and $65 for members of the Friends.
We thank our major sponsor Judy Nystrom and Julia Daley of First Colorado Realty.
Put this date on your calendar and be prepared to enjoy history from an entirely different perspective. Thank you in advance for supporting the Tenth Annual Historic Tour! This tour is one of the Friends’ most important fundraisers and benefits the Estes Park Museum
