This course will provide an overview of the region’s past by mixing brief lecture-and-discussion format with visits to historical sites of significance.  Site visits will range from an ancient Indian battlefield to early homesteads, from stately resorts to deserted cabins.  The course will examine numerous historical sites in the Estes Valley to discover the outlines of settlement and change.  This class is intended to be more than just an historical tour.  Participants are urged to sample the bibliography listed below before attending the class.
