Gypsum hosts huge July 4 crowd

The Eagle County Historical Society is now the proud owner of a player piano. Donated by Susan Nottingham, this oak Automotive piano was purchased by Avon rancher Harry Nottingham in 1911. The piano has its original ivory keys, and a dozen rolls of music, but needs some repair before it can be played. Pictured here are Susan Nottingham, and the crew who moved the instrument into the museum: Ben Slaughter (great-great grandson of Eagle County pioneer Ed Slaughter), Jake Niswanger, Chess Warren and Jesse Gregg. Not pictured are Kevin Brubeck and Rich Borden. The museum, located in Chambers Park in Eagle, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
