Local History Series: Sisters of Courage
Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 7:00PM – 8:00PM
at Erie Community Center
Celebrate Women’s History Month as historian Dave Lively follows one family through the turmoil of The Civil War, Westward Expansion, and the Panic of 1893.
These well-known historical events take on new meaning with this story of Grand Lake homesteaders Annie and Kittie Harbison, sisters who operate a dairy ranch to supply fresh milk to the expanding Grand Lake population.
Dave Lively is a historian in Grand Lake, Colorado whose family homesteaded what is now the Grand Lake entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. He appears in the PBS documentary, “The Living Dream: 100 Years of Rocky Mountain National Park” and conducts historic tours and seminars for Rocky Mountain National Park, Rocky Mountain Conservancy, and the Trail River Ranch Education Center.
