Greetings from Mt. Sopris Historical Society!
March 2015 Newsletter
The Roaring Fork & Crystal River Valleys have long been a source of inspiration for Hollywood film makers. Since the early nineteen hundreds over a dozen movies have been filmed in and around the area. This spring the Carbondale Branch Library and the the Mt. Sopris Historical Society are hosting "Roaring Fork Goes to the Movies" featuring family-friendly films that were made in around Carbondale.
Movies and popcorn are FREE and shown on the third Saturdays, February through April 2pm at the Carbondale Branch Library.
Join us this Saturday, March 21, 2pm to see TALE TALE. A Disney classic about a young boy who draws on the inspiration of legendary western characters to find strength to fight an evil land baron in the old west who wants to steal his family's farm and destroy their idyllic community.

About Mt. Sopris Historical Society
Chartered in 1984, The Mt Sopris Historical Society (MSHS) began with a group of concerned citizens, some of them descendants from original homesteading families. They felt an urgent need to preserve Carbondale’s historic buildings and the stories of its early residents. The MSHS is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and the Executive Director coordinates the activities of the organization and its three museum properties. learn more »
