Sat. 24 Mar, 2018 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Meet the vibrant 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.

Hear his views on conservation, agriculture, and democracy, all shaped by his Western experience. Portrayed by Arch Ellwein, President Roosevelt talks of his experiences with Seth Bullock and his time in the Black Hills. Following his "press conference," the actor/historian comes out of character for further discussion. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
