7:00 PM
Historic USO Building
This month’s meeting of the Historical Society of the Upper Mojave Desert will feature a special showing of the Maturango Museum’s popular DVD, “Somewhere on the Edge of Nowhere” on Tuesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Historic USO Building. Hosted by videographer, Mark Pahuta and local author and historian, Liz Babcock, this fascinating 65-minute video entertainingly depicts a representative 17 members of our community telling the story of our valley’s history as they saw it happen. The video begins the viewer's trip through local history with the first Shoshonean people, progressing through the aqueduct-building, homesteading and mining eras. Also featured in this video are glimpses of life in the Indian Wells Valley of today. Pahuta and Babcock will answer questions from the audience, and the various works of both hosts will be on sale at the Gift Shop before and after the presentation.
