The July History Café at the Overland Trail Museum will take place on Wednesday, July 26 at 10:30 am in the High Plains Education Center. History Café is a monthly program at the museum focusing on various historic topics. This month’s topic will be Colorado’s Centennial Farms.
Across our beautiful state, family farms and ranches are disappearing at an alarming rate and with them the history of how the West was settled may be in danger of disappearing as well. In 1986 a collaborative effort between the Colorado Governors office, the Colorado Historical Society and the Colorado Department of Agriculture created the Colorado Centennial Farms program to recognize and preserve the importance of agriculture in our states history.
Come and hear about some of the Logan County farms that have been recognized as a Centennial Farm and how these special agricultural families are keeping both their family histories as well as our state’s history alive for future generations. The price is $3 per person. Coffee, tea and muffins will be served. Please call the museum at 970-522-3895 to let them know that you are coming.
