June 2022: Voices of Colorado Territory
Written letters were the primary form of communication for Americans in the nineteenth century. When hundreds, if not thousands, of miles separated family members and friends from one another, missives were vital in both maintaining connections to the news of the world and in easing the omnipresent pain of loneliness.
Traces of the Past opens its company archives and shares some letters of the common people who ventured out to the West during the 1860s. Gather round. Listen. And let the voices of a Colorado long since gone lead you back to a different time.
When: Saturday, June 4, 18, and 25
Time: 7–8:00 p.m.
Where: Running Deer Natural Area –
3745 E. Prospect Road, Fort Collins, CO
Weather conditions in Colorado can vary so please dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes for standing and walking (smooth and uneven surfaces). In addition, consider bringing water, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
About Our Talks (June - August)
Located on historic ground along the Cache la Poudre River, our venue provides a scenic open grassy area perfect for small audiences. Folding chairs are furnished for your comfort.
Our chronological and geographic scope at Traces of the Past allows for the exploration of a vast storehouse of historic subject matter. The truth is that it is nigh on impossible to mention, let alone discuss, every topic of import or interest during our tours given their limited duration. Therefore, in order to introduce and delve deeper into those “missed” historic subjects, we are offering one-hour evening talks as an adjunct to our tours.
