Explore the colorful characters who have helped shape the Bear River Region's culture then and now. The fabric of Cache Valley and the surrounding area was influenced by a diverse group: from Shoshone Indians to Bear Lake trader Peg Leg Smith; from the Dr. Pierce, the millionaire medical quack to the musicians; and from settlers who were saints and others who were sinners. They all played a part. This class highlights some classic contributions of historical figures and residents who are making history today.

Course Instructor: Julie Hollist Terrill is the director of the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau.
