The People Behind Francisco Fort Museum


Who We Are

Find out more about the team behind Francisco Fort Museum. This historic site in La Veta, Colorado, exists thanks to the generous donations of our supporters and the hard work of our staff.

Nancy Christofferson

Our primary docent and historian is Nancy Christofferson, who has authored five publications on local history and also writes two weekly historical columns for the World Journal newspaper. Her family has been visiting or residing in the Cuchara valley since the 1920s and still owns a family cabin in Cuchara. Come enjoy Nancy's encyclopedic knowledge of the fort and local history.

Bob Kennemer

Bob Kennemer is the director and has an extensive background as an interpretive naturalist. He always includes social and cultural history as part of his education programs. Bob has resided on La Veta for 30 years and is a strong supporter of the arts and museum of local history.
