We are going to sponsor a field trip the last Tuesday of each month to visit our local historical sites–all members and visitors welcome. This month we will visit Fowler Museum and see the cabin that used to stand at the old Kit Carson Museum. We are working on several projects right now, including a medical exhibit, a Bent’s Old Fort Exhibit, and starting to gear up for SFTD. We are enjoying the help of our new receptionist, Devonie. Stop by to give her a big welcome. Our museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children above 6 years. FREE access to the Old Trail gallery if you just want to shop. We have started work on Bent County Chronicle #29 coming out soon. Many thanks to all of our community supporters and we hope you had a nice holiday!
