Foundations of Steamboat: The Summer Family: October 2013 - September 2014
The Foundations of Steamboat Exhibit Series highlights families whose members have made a significant contribution to Northwestern Colorado. This year the Tread of Pioneers Museum honors the Summer family.
The Summer family ranching tradition lasted over 100 years, supported by Vernon Summer–a man who had ranching in his blood, a lifetime of hard work in his hands, and a love of the land and community in his heart.
