Franktown Elementary Character Re-enactments (Nov 2014)

On November 19, 2014, members of Larkspur Historical Society (LHS), Douglas County History Research Center (DCHRC), and Historic Douglas County, Inc. (HDC) presented a re-enactment of Douglas County pioneers to the second grade students of Franktown Elementary School.  Four historic characters of Douglas County’s past took the stage: The Wagon Master (LHS’s Dennis Burdick); Sheriff John Hammond (DCHRC Archivist Blake Graham); James Frank Gardner and James P. Riggs …AKA “Uncle Jimmy” (Respectively, HDC-ers Jim Weglarz and Larry Schlupp).  This photographic journey is a  brief collage overview of the day.
