Shawnee History Day
& Pop-Up Museum

PopUp.jpg

Our main event, fundraiser, and educational exhibition is Shawnee
History Day
. Where we celebrate our historic mountain community
by asking locals to bring their artifacts and antiques to display in our Pop-Up Museum. We raise money with a silent auction, anproviding tours of some of the oldest houses
and cabins in Park County. We hope
to expand our event to include edu-
cational booths that teach
mountain
skills and historical facts about the
area. Shawnee History Day takes
place in early August and hosts live
music and good food.

Our Pop-Up Museum features
not only antiques and artifacts
from locals. but  reproduced 
maps and old photos that show
when and where certain legen-
dary events had occurred, when and where landmarks existed, 
and the coordinates of original 
homesteads and property lines.

Price - Tyler Cemetery
Restoration Project

20230919_120655 (1)_edited.jpg

We are working to preserve several

tombstones from our historic

Price-Tyler cemetery. The stones

will be placed into a block of concrete with special preservative

mortar which will keep it from 

sinking into the ground. The county

is building a stone retaining wall and culverts to divert the rainwater

and snowmelt around the cemetery.

Meanwhile we are raising money to 

build a historically accurate fence

and gate around the cemetery.
