Special Events

Archaeology Artifact Day

Have you ever found an old-looking object on your property or while hiking in Ken-Caryl Ranch Open Space and you wanted to know more about it? Perhaps it looked ancient like an arrow, spear point, or stone tool, or maybe you found something closer to our time like a historic artifact from the early settlers.

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Historical Society would like you to bring your ancient and historical artifacts to its Archaeology Artifact Day. The Historical Society will have experts on hand to tell you more about your artifact.

The Historical Society can help you know more about your artifact, and they would like to photograph and document it for archival purposes. If you don’t want to keep your item, you are welcome to donate the artifact so the Historical Society can add it to their permanent collection for future study. Donating the item is completely optional.
