The 50th Anniversary of the 1965 Flood
In 1965 Castle Rock was cut off from the rest of Colorado when Plum Creek and Sellar’s Gulch flooded the city and washed out the bridges. Come in to the museum to find out what bridge this was and how much water rushed through Castle Rock before flowing into the Platte river and flooding Denver.
