Pride of the Pioneers

By Polly Oberosler
The Gunnison County Pioneer and Historical Society was formed in 1905. By 1906 they had decided that they would work toward the establishment of a local museum to conserve the rich heritage they were a part of. Although the Pioneer Society was active, the idea of a museum did not officially come to be until 1963, when the Adams and Wilson families donated five acres of land to start the project. The museum itself opened its doors in the summer of 1964.
