June 2015

I am early, 

The May Festival was delightful this year. Eron Johnson appraised many artifacts and collectiblesH for visitors, some who came all the way from Fort Collins. Thanks Eron

Chris made delicious Sloppy Joes which every one enjoyed. Desert was her specialty, Rubarb Sauce over fresh home made biscuits. Wow Chris thanks so much for again sharing you talents with us.

The quilting circle set up a frame in the livingroom for all to quilt on.  The chatter while they sewed reminded us of our grandmothers setting around the quilting frame busy hands at work discussing recipes and other tidbits. Thanks Gals you are a fun addition to the happenings at the museum.  If you are interested in joining this group please contact Jane at the museum for details 303-421-9111.

 Music floated on the breeze through all the buildings thanks to Joann and her Blue Grass and.  

Later an Irish Band stopped buy and played in the Soddy.  Thank you to much it is so wonderful to meet all these talented people

The MAY POLE dance was organized by Winston a member of the society and young and old enjoyed wrapping the pole with colorful ribbon.

May 16th

The weather cleared just long enough for the wedding of CLAY OWEN WORTH iv(JESSE) AND TASHA TREAT. The reception was held in the Sod House a lovely day and a lovely couple. The couple returned to Trinidad Colorado to start house keeping after their car was repaired on Sunday. Congratulations to the Happy Couple.

The Wheat Ridge Historical Society has been working on a list of houses built before 1920.The project is now finished. Backup information that we have (we do not have further information on all the houses and buildings) is at the museum and at City hall. The last column will let you know if there is further information. Please feel free to contact the Historical Society if you would like to have your house to be a Local Landmark.  The benefits are.  It makes your house more valuable without raising your taxes, and you may be eligible for grants from the Colorado State Gambling Funds. The Historical Society has that information at the museum. Contact us at 303-421-9111 or we are open on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  come and visit us.
