The Silt Historical Society will host the longtime Silt Chautauqua living history celebration from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 9 and 10, at the Silt Historical Park at Eighth and Orchard across from the Silt Elementary School.

Based on the traditions of the rural community coming together for educational purposes, the Silt Chautauqua will bring history alive to illustrate the daily life and duties of the Western Slope in the early 1900s.

Local history presentations will range from old cowhands telling stories of days living at cow camp to demonstrations of turn-of-the-century blacksmithing techniques.

The Chautauqua is open to the public both days on Friday and Saturday, with local school classes invited on Friday.

Informal presentations and casual storytelling will take place throughout both days of the Chautauqua. Visitors will be able to watch branding demonstrations, take a turn at churning butter, listen to life of a 1900s forest ranger or possibly sample sourdough bread and cookies cooked in a woodstove.

Volunteers, handicraft demonstrators, storytellers and local old-timers are needed. To volunteer, call Alice Boulton at 876-2668, Alice Jones at 876-2966 or Bonnie Grant evenings at 876-5652.

The nonprofit Silt Historical Society and Park was established in 1982 and is maintained and operated through the assistance of local volunteers and business contributions as well as grants from foundations.

In addition to the Chautauqua, the historical park is open for regular-season tours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, May 1 to Oct. 1, or at other times by appointment. The museum currently is in need of volunteer tour guides, grant writers, park maintenance workers and display arrangers. For more information, call the historical park at 876-5801.
