Drylanders Museum in Nunn

When: September 18 or 25, at your leisure. 

Where: 755 3rd St.

The HLC board had really hoped to host a members tour of the delightful history museum in Nunn. It’s a real treasure and we’re sure our members would enjoy getting together to see all that the museum has to offer. Unfortunately, though some of us had blocked out the 18th for this event, uncertainly about the Delta variant of Covid, and family concerns, have kept board members unable to commit. So….

 

We encourage you to still swing by the museum if you are able. The museum is open on weekends during the summer, and September still counts. You can go on the 18th, as the HLC board had planned. Or hop on over there on the 25th and experience Nunn Days (complete with Goose Poop Bingo!  Well, at leaest they usually have it. Not sure what the plans are for this year.)

We do still hope to plan an event specifically for HLC members to the museum. This place is a real treasure and is a great grassroots example of saving local history and heritage.

The museum is free to tour, but they do have a donation box available if you’d like to donate. 

How Northern Colorado Has Faced Past Pandemics

When: We would love to present this talk to your group! 

Where: Zoom

We’ve been here before. Pandemics aren’t all the same, but there are themes that remain true from one to the next. And we’ve dealt with several pandemics in the past couple hundred years here in Northern Colorado. In this presentation, you’ll hear from several of Historic Larimer County’s board members on how past pandemics have affected Berthoud, Loveland, and Fort Collins. This presentation will include an overview of the past 200 years with a focus on the 1918 Influenza Pandemic and how it affected folks in Northern Colorado. 

Members of the HLC board gave this presentation via Zoom on October 27th, 2020 and we’d love to give it again. If you would like us to present this talk to your group, please use the contact link above to get in touch with us.
