Full House at Niwot Historical Society Lecture
October 6, 2017
Niwot Historical Society guest speaker Mona Lambrecht presented the fascinating story of Rocky Mountain Joe Sturtevant at the Left Hand Grange Hall on the evening of Sept. 27.
At least 100 people attended. Topics covered included Rocky Mountain Joe’s irreplaceable contributions to preserving local history through his prolific photography, and his recounting of development in Boulder and the surrounding areas in the late 1800’s.
Lambrecht, curator of History and Collections at the University of Colorado Heritage Center, is currently writing a book about Rocky Mountain Joe.
Her deep knowledge and passion for the subject, and her wonderful presentation, filled every seat in the Grange.
The next Niwot Historical Society lecture is titled “The American Hobo” and will be held at the Left Hand Grange Hall, 7p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 25.
