The Armstrong Heritage Center, as a Scouting museum, opened in 2008 on the occasion of the 50th camping season at the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch. The museum's name honors Eagle Scout, and former camp staff member and university educator, Daniel Armstrong. The structure originally was constructed on the Pinecroft Ranch as a calving shed. Later in its Scout camp days it served as a storage facility, trail center, and - after a 1985 camp staff reunion service project - the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch administrative office.
At the exterior of the museum building can be found an old transport wagon, early pieces of ranch and farming machinery, and a replica of the Statue of Liberty. This statue once stood in a park on the eastside of Lake Loveland in Loveland, Colorado. It was placed by Scouts in 1950 on the occasion of the 40th birthday of the Boy Scouts of America, and it was upgraded with a new statue in the mid 1980s.
Flanking a map display case of the early settler trails and homestead history in and around the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch are uniforms of a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Explorer from the late 1950s time period. In addition, a display case of various Exploring program items, patches and publications is situated between the uniformed Scouts. Also located near this display are Varsity Scouting items, historical pennants, unit flags, and 1950's and 1960's recognition plaques.
There is a Boy Scout standing there next to the show case to get extra credit and koodoos for the find stop in and look at the Shoulder strip and tell me what city is he from.
You will have to be stealthy to retrieve this cache during the active months of Summer Camp. Please hide this as well as you found this.
