How do towns get lost … or die? Once gone, how are they found again? Sometimes, it is while looking for one thing that we find another. That is what happened to author Johanna Wickman. While gathering information on Preston Plumb, she came upon the story of Mariposa. Join her via Zoom, as she shares why this Saline County town was founded, what happened to it and a bit about Plumb, its founder. Wickman is an author, independent researcher, member of the Fort Caspar Museum Association Board and president at Wickman Historical Consultants. The Museum Store has signed copies of her book, The Forgotten Senator: The Life & Character of Preston B. Plumb.
The Smoky Hill Museum is hosting this presentation through Zoom only on Thursday, February 1, 2024, from 5:30 to 6:30. Register for your Zoom link at www.smokyhillmuseum.org.
