Staunton State Park HostsLiving History Days September 23-24

PINE, Colo. – Staunton State Park will recreate a bit of Colorado history on September 23 and 24 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm each day. Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to experience life as the early homesteaders did through a variety of activities that commemorate the rich history of the area. At the historic Staunton cabin district visitors can watch cabin-making in action, learn about medicinal plants used by homesteaders and the native Utes alike, and be entertained with lively old time music while enjoying traditional ‘johnny’ cakes. Youngsters can enjoy games and a make an Indian talking stick, as well as a follow treasure hunt for gold allegedly stashed by the infamous Reynolds Gang.

For true history buffs,local historical organizations will be available to share information and answer questions about the people and places that made Jefferson County and Colorado who we are today.And to round out our larger history, John Steinle will present “The Fur Trade In Early Colorado”.Feel free to get in the spirit and join park volunteers by dressing as your favorite character from a century ago. Come spend the day at this beautiful state park, located just 40 miles southwest of Denver off highway 285. Enjoy Living History Days and be sure to come back again to take advantage of our variety of trails for hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. See you there!
