This is a free-admission, 45-minute living history performance. Wrap your hands around a delicious drink and listen to the evocative life story of Coloradan and Routt County resident and her experiences as a female rancher of cattle and sheep that include homesteading, making a living, and surviving the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic. Come and be inspired by Margaret Duncan Brown, also known as The Shepherdess of Elk River Valley.
