Oak Creek museum hosts author event, historic tours

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Join the Tracks and Trails Museum in Oak Creek for an opportunity to meet authors sharing stories from Routt County’s past at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2 at the museum, 131 E. Main St. in Oak Creek.

Audiences will have a chance to meet author Randi Samuelson-Brown, who wrote “The Beaten Territory,” a historical fiction novel about prostitution in downtown Denver, and Laurel Watson, author of “The Yampa Valley Sin Circuit,” a nonfiction novel based on characters and events from the historic red light districts of Routt and Moffat counties.

The museum and historical society will also offer various historic tours in town.

A Foidel School tour will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday, Sept. 2 with attendees meeting at the Tracks & Trails Museum. The school was built in 1924, then closed in 1960, when consolidation was mandated.

Historic roadside mine tours will be offered at noon and 2 p.m. Sunday. The tour is an opportunity for attendees to learn about the mine areas along the Oak Creek Canyon. Participants should meet at the museum.
