CB Museum walking tour in Gunnison this Saturday
The Crested Butte Museum is offering a series of special walking tours this summer and fall. This week’s tour takes place in Gunnison on Saturday morning with a walking tour with David Primus. Primus, a local historian, will lead an 1880s tour of Gunnison. 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. Dave specializes in researching the more obscure details of history—you will learn things you never knew before. Meet at 114 N. Boulevard at 9 a.m. You may park in the lot. Tour is $20 for members and $25 for non-members.
