Joins us on Thurs. Sept. 14, 2023 for a presentation by CRHSM President, Ron Claussen on the 90th Anniversary of the Castlewood Canyon Dam break.  The collapse of part of the Castlewood Canyon Dam caused a major flood that made it all the way to Downtown Denver.  It caused over 1 million in damage (in 1933 values) and took out farms, ranches, homes and so much more along the way.   The presentation will begin at 7:00pm at the Philip S. Miller Library 100 S. Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO 80104.
