CRHSM Free Monthly Presentation for August

Posted by on July 28, 2017

Please join us on Thurs. August 10, 2017 for a presentation by Dick Kreck on his book “Rich People Behaving Badly”.  Public respectability does not always translate into tidy private lives, and our interest in the naughty behavior of the rich and famous will never be satisfied. Former Denver Post reporter Dick Kreck takes us back through Colorado’s history to show that the foibles of people—rich or poor—remain the same. Included are socialites such as Louise Sneed Hill, who created and ruled over Denver’s “Sacred 36” circle of society; Jane Tomberlin, who met and fell in love with a “prince” in an elevator at the Brown Palace Hotel; and gangster Diamond Jack who hid out in Douglas County for awhile.

Refreshments will be served at 6:45 pm with the presentation beginning at 7:00 pm.  Philip S. Miller Library 100 Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO  80104.  For more information check out our website at www.castlerockhistoricalsociety.org or contact the Castle Rock Museum at 303-814-3164, museum@castlerockhistoricalsociety.org.  Admission is free and no reservations required.
