Aug. 24 – CPW heads to Estes Park for history

Mark your calendars for Aug. 24, when CPW members will have the opportunity to hear about the lost lodges inside Rocky Mountain National Park from Bobbie Heisterkamp and explore Estes Park Museum’s holdings and its many services available to journalists and history lovers with Derek Fortini, museum director.

During the 1920s there were many lodges and hotels inside and on the edges of Rocky Mountain National Park, and the National Park Service decided to get rid of the ones inside the park in a program called Mission 66. By 1966 the park would be returned to a natural state, and all the lodgings would be methodically removed. Bobbie Heisterkamp has a large collection of vintage postcards from the national park, and she will illustrate the tourist experience inside some of these lost lodges and hotels in the 1920s.

While the Estes Park Museum has a Stanley Steamer, exhibits and historic buildings to explore, Fortini also will talk about the 21st Century services the museum is offering, such as digitizing its collection of the Estes Park Trail Gazette.

By holding the event at the museum with its free parking, attendees can avoid the traffic and congestion of downtown Estes and the RMNP entrances. Check back in July for details.
