Join Oil Painters of America on a Virtual Road Trip with Director and Chief Curator Ken Schuster Friday, September 17 at 1 PM.
Mr. Schuster will take attendees on a virtual tour through the Bradford Brinton Memorial’s Brinton home, constructed in 1892 as the home of William Moncreiffe. He will endeavor to place the house and the historic ranchland upon which it sits into the historical context of early White settlement into this area formerly occupied by the Crow, Northern Cheyenne, Arapaho and Lakota People.
Ken will share his in-depth knowledge about the Brinton family and explain how Bradford’s purchase of the Quarter Circle A Ranch transformed it from a working ranch into a Gentleman’s Working Ranch and why his sister Helen’s inheriting the property in 1936 played an integral role in the founding of today’s Brinton Museum.
