Dave Primus' Under Blue Mesa
Under Blue Mesa Presentation

Add to your calendar
Date: August 21, 6:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Gunnison Community Center, 200 E. Spencer Ave
Details: Dave Primus, local author and historian, will give a power-point presentation of "Under Blue Mesa" 6:00-7:15 pm in the Young-at-Heart rooms of the Rec Center.  This popular program depicts the Gunnison River Valley before Blue Mesa Reservoir with some new photos from his previous presentations.  Before Blue Mesa Reservoir was completed in 1965 the 25-mile valley west of Gunnison was a fishing paradise with several resorts, towns and the narrow gauge railroad to Montrose.  One well-know spot even included four bridges in one location.  Primus has lived in Gunnison since 1978.  His family has lived in Colorado since the 1890's, and he's always been interested in Colorado history.  He published a book of his grandfather's stories about growing up in Steamboat Springs in the 1900's.
