An Inspired Life: the story of John Metzger

Metzger Farm, 12080 Lowell Blvd 
Saturday, August 13, 7 p.m.  
Ticket: Free, Walk-in

What do you know about Metzger Farm’s larger-than-life namesake? In this partnership program with performers from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, you will learn about the early 20th-century milieu that led to the fascinating story of Colorado’s Attorney General John Metzger and his battles against temperance, organized crime, and corrupt public officials in the 1950s and 60s. From mining to politics and back again, this program is a true whirlwind through Colorado history in the 20th century.
