The ECHS Museum is closed for the season
The Miles and Bancroft Awards Committee of History Colorado recently met to make its selection for the 2016 awards. Kathy Heicher and the Colorado Department of Transportation's book The Bridges of Eagle County was selected to receive this year's Caroline Bancroft History Project Award. The committee was especially impressed by the creative approach to federally required mitigation and the engaging design and content of the book itself. History Colorado is very pleased to add the book to the Heckendorn Library (historic preservation focused) collection where it will be accessible to the public.
Congratulations to Kathy Heicher and CDOT!
What a wonderful way to enter the holiday season! Thanks to all of you who contributed to the Eagle County Historical Society on Colorado Gives Day, December 6, 2016. We received $1,600 through your generosity. What a help to us as we look forward to 2017!
We hope 2017 is good to everyone and don't forget to make some history.
