Buckskin Joe Cemetery Moonwalk Film Premieres this
Sunday October 18th!
Lights. Camera. Action!
Hosting an in-person event with 400+ people was not an option this year. Enter volunteer coordinator Kathy Butler with a brilliant idea to film the Moonwalk event and share it far and wide. Volunteers gathered to perform their historic characters at a safe distance early this fall, filmed by Mt. Bailey Productions and sponsored by South Park National Heritage Area. The result? An awesome film that brings the cultural history of the late 1800's in Alma to life.
MRHI's Buckskin Joe Cemetery Moonwalk is available beginning Sunday, Oct. 18th on the MRHI website. Although it's free to view, we'd be truly grateful for your donation to continue our conservation and education efforts. Those who donate $25 or more by 10/31/20 will receive a special book about the cemetery, All That Lies Beneath, Selected Historic Burials in the Alma/Buckskin Cemetery, Park County, Colorado, written by Christie Wright.
Although it's disappointing to miss the magic of Buckskin Cemetery in person, we're thrilled to be able to share this event as well as our conservation mission to an even broader audience.
