MEEKER I The Rio Blanco County Historical Society will host a tour of the Milk Creek Battlefield Park at 10 a.m. on July 3.
Persons interested in the tour should meet at the garrison, next door to the White River Museum (565 Park) to hear the story of the last Native American battle with the U.S. Army in the United States.

Cost is $10 per adult while children are free. The tour takes at least two hours.
