About Devil's Gate History Talks

Devil's Gate History Club provides a forum for those interested in learning more about the history of the Georgetown-Silver Plume area and the relationship of that history to the local culture, economy, and environment, all within the broader context of the development of the Rocky Mountain West. More recently, the club has broadened its horizons to offer lectures about other interesting topics in the state of Colorado. Participants seek to advance their understanding of the area's history through research and discussion of historical topics.

Voluntary donations are accepted at each meeting to help cover expenses. An audio recording is made of each presentation; the tapes and CDs are available through Historic Georgetown may be checked out.

Meetings are usually on the third Friday of each month from September through May, except that no meeting is held in December. Unless otherwise announced, all meetings are held in the Georgetown Community Center on 6th Street, beginning at 7 p.m. The May meeting is a field trip to a nearby place of historic interest.
