Alan Wise, Erie Historical Society PresidentOur Homestead Christmas this past December was another success! We were treated with a beautiful snowfall to accent the occasion. Unfortunately our entertainment was cancelled due to the collapse of our big tent, but we had a nice turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy the hot cider, cookies, and donuts.

The digitizing of our copies of the 1903-1905 Erie News is nearly complete. The Colorado State Library has successfully scanned all the pages of the newspaper and microfilmed them. We will soon have the digital copies available online.

If you are interested in joining the Erie Historical Society or learning more about the Wise Homestead Museum, go to our website at or complete the form at the end of this newsletter.

Thank you,
