Frisco Historic Park and Museum to host historic women of Bill’s Ranch tour

The Frisco Historic Park and Museum will be celebrating Women’s History Month with a free Women of Bill’s Ranch tour on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Museum staff will lead the tour, which will focus on the pioneering women of the area.

Bill’s Ranch became Frisco’s first subdivision when William (Bill) Thomas wrote a letter to 100 Denver residents offering free land if they would build cabins there within one year. Walking tour participants will find out why Bill Thomas made the offer of free land and also about the pioneering women who helped shape the area. 

“Women pioneers had unique hardships and successes, which make their stories just that much more complex and layered,” museum manager Simone Belz said in a news release. “We strive to honor their legacy by taking advantage of Women’s History Month to take a deeper dive into the role of women in Frisco’s history.” 

Space on the tour is limited and advance registration is required. Participants should be prepared for unpredictable March weather and wear sturdy walking shoes and warm comfortable clothing. Dogs are not allowed on this tour.

Register by calling 970-668-3428.
