Preservation Thursday: Treasures of the National Parks Yesterday & Today

DEADWOOD – Deadwood History, Inc. and the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission will host a lecture by Paul Horsted, South Dakota Humanities Council Speakers’ Bureau Scholar, at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, 2017, at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC), 150 Sherman Street, Deadwood. The event is wheelchair accessible. Please feel free to bring your lunch.

Custer-based author and photographer Paul Horsted reveals his latest project of “re-photography” in 24 National Parks during this presentation. Over the past five years, Horsted tracked down more than 170 historic photo sites in National Parks across the country (including three in South Dakota and Wyoming). From well-known scenic overlooks to the most remote backcountry locations, he uncovered surprising changes and amazing similarities between “then and now" in America’s National Parks. A book will be released in December.

Paul Horsted is known around the Black Hills for his earlier books about the 1874 Custer Expedition and other re-photography projects across the region as well as in Yellowstone National Park. His website is www.paulhorsted.com.

Preservation Thursday is co-sponsored by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Deadwood History, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Saloon No. 10, Fresh Paint, Historic Homestake Opera House, Celebrity Hotel, Jerry Greer's Engineering, tdg, and the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
