Fort Phil Kearny Event Features History of Plains, Rockies

A free event coming up at the end of the month will feature the history of the region in a presentation entitled “Walking Back 10,000 Years of Human History on the Great Plains and the Middle Rocky Mountains.”

The Fort Phil Kearny State Historical Site will be offering a talk and a walk and talk with Archaeologist Cody Newton, PhD.
