Mountain Men: Early Explorers of the West
The Pikes Peak Historical Society invites you to learn more about the Mountain Men who explored this country at the PPHS monthly Chautauqua on Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. at the Florissant Library.
Mountain Men were early explorers who traveled the American West in the years following the explorations of Lewis and Clark. These courageous men made a living off the lucrative fur trade. They were also instrumental in locating the various trails which were later widened for use by wagon trains and other settlers traveling west.
Ken Valles, local resident and Mountain Men researcher, will share his knowledge about the Mountain Man era (1820-1840) at the Pikes Peak Historical Society AprilView more
