Grand Valley Quilt Show scheduled
Thanks to some financial help from Williams Production RMT, the energy company, members of the Grand Valley Historical Society have renovated an historic cabin that now sits next to the Battlement Mesa Schoolhouse at 7235 300 Road.
Known as the Glover cabin, the structure was moved last fall from its original site on Parachute Creek, then refurbished and furnished to appear as though a schoolmarm of yesteryear still lives inside.
The cabin dates to the late 1800s, when it was built by settler Thomas Glover about four miles west of Parachute.
Tours of the Glover cabin and the historic schoolhouse will be offered Sept. 25 and 26 during the annual Grand Valley Quilt Show.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.
A $3 donation is suggested to benefit the historical society.
Quilts from Battlement Mesa Sew & Sew Quilters will be on display throughout both buildings, and “bed turnings” of antique quilts are planned hourly.
Those who attend will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite quilt, and Viewers’ Choice awards will be presented to various winners.
