Jack Schmidt--master of the black iron pot--will prepare an authentic 1870s Dutch oven feast for us at the South Pass City State Historic Site. Members' cost for the meal will be about $20 per person. Beer and bottled water will also be for sale (proceeds will go to the Friends of South Pass City).

The Atlantic City Historical Society put on a play, That Gold Mine in the Sky, that was arranged, edited, and directed by Dave Geible. Click the left image for the play's program. Philippina Halstead drew the Cariboo Mill on the program's cover. Click the right image for the teacher's guide to accompany the play. The guide, written by Michael A. Massie, includes local history and a wonderful, thought-provoking social commentary related to Atlantic's boom-bust cycle.
