Join us for the second event in our “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series of free talks. At noon on September 9, Bob talks about the history of the Frost & Richard Camping Co., which operated in Yellowstone National Park from 1906–1916. Bob’s uncle, Ned Frost, and his grandfather Fred Richard took guests (up to 150!) on journeys through the park—three trips of 18 days each by horse and wagon. Following the presentation and Q&A in the Coe Auditorium, Bob signs copies of his book of the same title at the Center’s store, Points West Market.
With a wealth of knowledge about the Cody and Yellowstone National Park areas, Bob has a lifetime of stories to share with future generations. The “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series includes four talks/book signings. Two talks remain in the series, with topic yet to be named:
• October 21: Ranching for 75 Years in the Wapiti Valley
• November 18
