Allosaurus fossil featured at Taste of History draws large crowd

Over 200 history buffs gathered on Saturday morning at the Headwaters Center to celebrate the 7th annual Taste of History event and participate in live and silent auctions to raise money for the Grand County Historical Association.

This year’s guest of honor was an allosaurus skeleton, featuring the first allosaurus fossil ever found in North America. The allosaurus tail vertebrae was found in 1895 in Granby and was originally mistaken for a petrified horse hoof. Now the fossil is housed in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

The money raised from the event will go to supporting the historical association and their four museums in the county. Shanna Ganne, executive director of the historical association, said they hope to raise $30,000 to expand educational outreach programs throughout the district.
