Interested in learning more about the history of Yellowstone Park?
The Gallatin Historical Society will sponsor a free talk Saturday, Sept. 14, entitled "Haynes Postcards and Messages from Wonderland." Jack and Susan Davis, authorities on Yellowstone antiques and postcards, will look at Haynes postcards and how they shaped the public's perception of Yellowstone Park throughout the world. Jack and Susan have assembled the largest private collection of Yellowstone Park antiques, numbering more than 20,000 pieces. The Davis Collection now resides in Yellowstone Park's archives in Gardiner. Following the presentation, they will be available to sign copies of their new book, The Haynes Family in Yellowstone National Park: 1881-1968.
The talk will be held in the Community Room of the Gallatin County Courthouse (next door to the Pioneer Museum), and begins at 9:30 a.m.
