She will provide introduction and some history about her family. The Trostels homesteaded at Caddoa, and the exhibit includes oil landscapes of the area before the John Martin Dam was built, one very large landscape and three smaller ones of the area west of the dam, plus two of the same size painted at the Trostel house in old Caddoa. Also included in the exhibit is a small display commemorating the 100 years the Cogswells have been in Colorado Springs.
