Crook County was settled by a range of colorful characters. From cowboys and gunslingers to madams and ministers, many rugged individuals sought new opportunity on the Central Oregon frontier. With the relaunch of People from Our Past at the Bowman Museum, you will once again have a chance to chat with a few of these historical figures – no time machine required.
People from Our Past will resume on September 8, 2021, bringing an historical reenactor to the museum’s community room every Wednesday from 12:15pm – 1:00 PM. We encourage you to bring your lunch and spend some time with us in the old West. September’s program will feature an appearance by infamous
outlaw and gunfighter of the American West, Hank Vaughan, played by Bend-based reenactor Matt Cleman.
