Widow planning Hunter S. Thompson museum at Owl Farm in Woody Creek
June 4, 2015
Hunter S. Thompson's widow is planning on opening a museum dedicated to the gonzo journalist on the Aspen-area farm he lived on for more than 35 years, The Cannabist has learned.
Owl Farm was the notorious home to Thompson, the father of gonzo journalism who lived on the Woody Creek compound from 1969 until his death in 2005. The farm is normally closed to the public, as it is still his widow Anita Thompson's private residence.
But fans of Thompson's legendary writing — including "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "The Rum Diary" — will get to experience it for themselves when part of the famed property opens as a museum dedicated to Thompson's bestselling writing and singular way of life.
