Themed Historic Walking Tour
July 27 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am$20
David Primus, a local historian, will lead an 1880s walking tour of Gunnison, Colorado. By 1882, Gunnison was booming – it had two railroads, two newspapers, four schools, and six churches. Using the 1882 Bird’s Eye View of Gunnison, Dave will help you imagine Gunnison as it was in 1882. The tour will cover both West Gunnison and East Gunnison, two rival towns in the early days. He will point out buildings remaining today, discuss significant sites, and will walk along the routes of the two railroads. Dave specializes in researching the more obscure details of history – you will learn things you never knew before!

Where: Meet at 114 N. Boulevard in Gunnison at 9am. You may park in the lot.
