Historic Preservation
Guns and Ammunition - Military and Civilian : 1860-1950

Once again the trail system brought Douglas County into history. Military groups formed for protection from the Indians traveled the Cherokee Trail and camped in the Russellville Gulch area. All ranchers and farmers had weapons for protection and for hunting. This exhibit will feature military weaponry, accessories and ammunition but will also have artifacts from households that show this aspect of how the family or community lived.
