She was a woman who came west with her husband Doc Huson after the Civil War to raise a family and in the 1890s helped establish the town of Huson near Clearmont. She'll also discuss the reason for the town of Huson's short lifespan, and talk about the buildings that remain there and other prominent individuals that called the small town home.
