Little House, The Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center

At Little House, we provide a breadth of services for adults of all ages with a focus on staying physically, intellectually, socially and culturally active. We encourage ongoing independence while staying connected with the larger community.

We provide a way of life based on the belief that no matter what their age:

  • People have not done all the things they would like to do
  • They have not met all the people they care to know
  • They have not contributed all they could to the health and well-being of their community

The American West: History Myth and Legacy

August 30 to October 18 2018

Thursdays 1:30pm—3:30pm

The brutal conflict of cowboys and Indians. Dusty, dangerous outposts policed by vigilante justice. The six-shooter showdown at high noon. Daring railroad heists and arduous cattle drives. These and other scenes from countless Western films have so shaped our conceptions of the American West that it’s impossible to separate myth from reality. But how wild was the West? Was it really ever “won”? This is a video-recorded lecture series.

Cost: $25 (8-week session) Refreshments included

Host: Janusz Warszawski
