Voltaire, the great French historian, once defined history as “a trick we play on the dead.” Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel and a cast of star CU-Denver students will explore that idea with a walking tour of Colorado’s biggest boneyard. Come and meet the unusually lively occupants of subterranean dwellings. Students will portray notable occupants, from mayors to madams, including the good (Dr. Justina Ford), the bad (Grand Dragon John Galen Locke) and the ugly (John Chivington). It’s time to dig into some history!
Provide your own transportation to starting point. Tombside taxi service provided by the Model A Ford Club of Colorado, weather permitting.
