Wendolyn Holland, author of “Sun Valley: An Extraordinary History,” will share the history of what most remember as Warm Springs Ranch, with photos and stories that shed light on those who came before. The 65-acre parcel along the south side of Warm Springs Creek has a rich history from its earliest days of settlement, connecting the canyon from the Philadelphia Smelter out to Guyer Hot Springs to its more recent and more familiar incarnation as the much-beloved Warm Springs Ranch the Simpson Family hosted for decades.
Warm Springs Preserve committee member Ali Long will also join us to share the process and plans for the future of the 65-acre parcel, which has most recently, and ongoing through its purchase in 2020, been offered up as a public park and off-leash dog area. The City of Ketchum is currently working to preserve the area as an open space in perpetuity for the community.
Space is limited, so register on the Library’s website in advance to save your seat. The program will also stream on the Library’s Vimeo and be available to watch live or later.
