History Camp …

Thirty-six PreK-5th graders attended history camp at the White River Museum and Old West Heritage Culture Center last week and learned about the history of our local newspaper and how the production process has changed since James Lyttle brought the first printing press to town. Following a Powerpoint presentation and a visit to the museum, the campers created their own front page edition of the Herald Times. Hannah Anderson’s full color front page is shown here. The history camps are provided by the Eastern Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District and the Rio Blanco County Historical Society.
