Colorado History Homesteading Days at Aspen Creek, Coal Creek, Louisville Elementary and Running River School!

A beautiful day on the Colorado plains – perfect for recreating what life in the 1860’s might have been like. Students panned for gold, sawed wood, made char cloth and tried to start a fire, played with pioneer toys and games, made buttons and carded wool, ground corn and fried up johnny cakes, made apple cider and tried their hand at writing with quill pens. This is truly a spectacular and successful educational day for all. We continue to receive rave reviews for it’s engaging qualities and authentic hands on experiences.
