Mayberry to discuss Pike expedition
Matt Mayberry, a historian at the Pioneers Museum, will talk about Zebulon Pike and his exploration of southern Colorado in
the early 1800s at a meeting of the Old Colorado City Historical Society (OCCHS) Friday, May 13.
The presentation, titled “The Pike Expedition,” will begin at 11 a.m. in the Old Colorado City History Center, 1 South 24th Street.
Admission is free, although donations are requested.
Pike's explorations in this period have been historically overshadowed because they occurred in the same period of time as the more well-known Lewis and Clark expedition.
