Castle Rock Historical Society and Museum's Free Monthly Presentation

Posted by crmuseum

Please join us on Thursday, Jan. 11,2017 for a presentation by Cindy Malone of Malone Media Group about the old mining Town of Uravan. In the 1950's business was booming on the Western Slope, Uranium was all the rage and Grand Junction was at the heart of it all. So, why did Grand Junction survive while competing Uravan (to the south) disappear completely. Not a vestige of it is to be seen today, except the memories of the people who lived there and were forced to leave. Refreshments will be served at 6:45pm and the presentation will begin at 7:00pm. Philip S. Miller Library 100 S. Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO 80104. For more information check out our website at or contact the Castle Rock Museum at 303-814-3164, Admission is free.
