Lecture Series – July
July 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
In pictures and maps, the story of John and George Hance, brothers who immigrated to and lived in Verde Valley. Expect a few surprises! …including the story of the Grand Canyon’s first settler, Capt. John, labeled as “the world’s greatest liar,” as described by Shane Murphy, an interpretive guide for Grand Canyon river trips for 20 years. Both John and George Hance were involved in the Navajo peoples’ return to the Four Corners, and the Yavapai-Apache ‘removal’ from the Verde to San Carlos Indian Reservation. FREE lecture begins at 2 p.m.; seating is limited.
