    Name: Pikes Peak or Bust: Colorado’s Women ‘59ers
    Date: December 9, 2018
    Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM MST
    Colorado's Women '59ers
    Event Description:
    Come join author J.v.L. Bell as she discusses the adventures of well-known frontierswomen like Elizabeth Byers, Augusta Tabor, and Addie LaMont. 

    Life for these early women settlers was difficult, filled with long days of washing clothes, cooking, and running boarding houses, but several women established more unusual roles. 

    Elsa Jane Forest took on the guise of a man; Charlotte Card dressed like a man and mined her own claim; and Mary Randal became one of Colorado’s first African-American settlers. From papering their walls to wash-tub panning, these women lived amazing lives and have stories that will make you laugh and bring tears to your eyes.

    Held at the Little White Schoolhouse Museum, 26951 Barkley Road, Conifer, CO 80433
    Tickets are $8/$10 (m/n)
