What's For Sale at The Florence Pioneer Museum?

     Welcome to a new link on the Museum's website! This link is to let you know what we have for sale at the Museum!

 

     Let's start off with an oldie but a goodie, a book called "Phantom Canyon".

     This book was for sale awhile ago describing the trip a person would take through Phantom Canyon. It is a scenic drive on Highway 67 north of Highyway 50. It is also the way the Florence & Cripple Creek train ran it's route from Cripple Creek to Florence bringing down gold ore to be refined in Florence. The train tracks were constantly washed out by flooding and was eventually abandonded.  

     This book costs: $1.00 plus shipping.

 

     Next, we have the book "King Coal" written by Antonette Cresto for sale for  $12.00 each plus shipping. Ms. Cresto was a schoolteacher in the coal camps of Rockvale, Coal Creek, Williamsburg, and Brewster. She describes the mining and living conditions of the miners and their families back in the day.

 

 

     The book "Boomtown"  was a synopsis of Florence founders and life written by the 8th grade class of 1981. Under the direction of Mr. Steve Morris, the Social Studies class researched and wrote short paragraphs of the time and lifestyle of early Florence. This paperback is for sale for $7.00 each plus shipping.

 

     Next comes "Mom's Good Cookin' Pioneer Recipes"  put together by Toni Price. The cookbook includes recipes such as Sour Dough bread, complete with how to make the sour dough starter and an Eggless-Butterless-Milkless Cake. The recipe book sells for $2.00 each plus shipping.
