Adult and Senior Education Onsite & Traveling Programs
Intersections explores the history of Bent’s Old Fort (1833- 1849) and life in what is now present-day Colorado in the first half of the 19thCentury. The location of Bent’s Old Fort made it a geographic, cultural, and economic crossroads. Participants will be able to touch historical objects, “meet” the cast of characters who inhabited Bent’s Old Fort, and examine primary sources that provide us with a wealth of knowledge about life at this important international trading post. This program is an hour and a half in length, and can be booked for groups of ten or more on weekdays throughout the year.
