Get in touch with history at new Trails West Fest

Gothenburg’s Pony Express Station Museum has joined forces with the Gothenburg Historical Museum to bring history alive on Aug. 28.

Trails West Fest is a new community event designed to celebrate the city’s heritage, said June Blauvelt, manager of the Pony Express Station.

“This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile,” Blauvelt said. “I know my kids love when we go places where we can see how things were done in the old days. I wanted to make that available right here in Gothenburg.”

Blauvelt said she approached the Gothenburg Historical Museum board for help.
