Hayden Heritage Weekend
|Hayden Heritage Weekend- Museum Fundraiser Event.
Take a day tour of the Elkhead Rock Schoolhouse, an historic site featured in the book Nothing Daunted by author Dorothy Wickenden. Meet Ms. Wickenden herself, along with Belle Zars, a local historian and granddaughter of “Ferry” Carpenter, a prominent character in both the book and in the history of the Yampa Valley.
Learn about the history of the area, the teachers’ experiences traveling from New York to Elkhead, and the difficulties faced by homesteaders whose children attended the school. Hear local naturalist Ryan Wattles discuss the area’s flora and fauna on a short, guided nature walk. And, enjoy a catered picnic lunch in the Elkhead Schoolhouse.
