Tuesday, March 24th, 60-min. video documentary, “The Best Kept Secret of the Wild West”, the Hanging Flume.  In this still wild land, it stands out, clearly fashioned by human hands, yet unlike anything else in the world.  The Flume is the longest Historic Structure in the State of Colorado.  Travel back to 1891 when the flume carried water 10 miles and, as designed, powered hydraulic cannon at the Montrose Placer Mining Company Claims downstream along the Dolores River. You will see footage of 48’ feet of the reconstructed flume providing a glimpse of what the actual flume box looked like. Discover the intriguing story of the Hanging Flume. It remains a tribute, and most of all, a lasting legacy of human spirit. Brought to you by the Interpretive Association in conjunction with their Annual Meeting.

Open to the public.  For more information please contact Chris Miller, Executive Director @ 970-874-6695 or go on line @ www.interpcolorado.org.
