Western Fremont Historical Society WFHS

Western Fremont Historical Society (WFHS) was created to preserve the history of the Pleasant Valley area that spans from Parkdale to Wellsville, Colorado.

We preserve the stories and the heritage of the people who settled and the ones who live there now.

Our History Center (the little white church in Howard) has archived donated materials and is open to the public.  Individuals can come and find the heritage of their families or the surrounding area.
