In 1869, sheepherders in Grand County presented surveyor Ferdinand V. Hayden with the fossil of what they believed to be a petrified horse hoof but was instead the very first bone discovered in North America from the fearsome Allosaurus. With the help of the Grand County Historical Association (GCHA), this prehistoric predator will be making a homecoming of epic proportions on Saturday, August 18, from 11:00am- 2:00pm, at the Headwaters Center, 730 Baker Dr, in Winter Park, at the 7th Annual Taste of History fundraiser. Please join GCHA in welcoming the Allosaurus and his owner, paleontologist John Hankla to explore the prehistoric history of Grand County.
Come for the dinosaurs, stay for the amenities! Delight in a hearty brunch of sparkling mimosas and succulent local cuisine, bid on unique items, fantastic bargains and exotic trips in the silent and live auctions, revel in live music by Tight Like That, and partake in the camaraderie and conversation of fellow GCHA members.
All proceeds directly benefit the Grand County Historical Association in meeting our mission of bringing history to all residents of Grand County, including an initiative to bring the story of our county to students in Fraser, Granby, and Kremmling schools. GCHA operates four museums across Grand County including Pioneer Village in Hot Sulphur Springs, Cozens Ranch in Fraser, Heritage Park in Kremmling and Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum in Granby.
Taste of History tickets are $60 for GCHA members, $75 for non-members, and are extremely limited.
