“What the Flock!” to be presented at Cave Creek Museum
On October 14, 2023 from 2-4 PM, Cave Creek Museum Presents will host speaker Kraig R. Nelson on the topic “What the Flock! Who Shot Billy Graham?
Nelson will share tales from Cave Creek’s wild and wooly history, when cattle and sheep reigned supreme and cowboys ruled the desert. He will delve into the dark and murderous past of one of the town’s founding fathers.
Nelson is historian for the accredited and internationally recognized Cave Creek Museum and also is one of the co-authors of the museum’s 2013 book, Images of America – Cave Creek and Carefree. Nelson has been published in America’s oldest western publication, True West Magazine, based in Cave Creek, and was honored as “Volunteer of the Year for the accredited Desert Foothill Land Trust and Docent of the Year for Cave Creek Museum.
Since 2011, Nelson has been a member of the Arizona Archaeological Society, which facilitates lectures from some of America’s top archaeologists. In 2013, he began leading both public and private tours at Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home, Taliesin West. Nelson claims to be able to access more than 40,000 historic documents, articles and images stored on his Cloud from his phone. Museum officials believe this is a low estimate.
Admission is $10 for adults and reservations are required.
