Join us for a captivating journey through Fruita’s rich history with this Past & Present, Fruita book signing event with local authors Denise and Steve Hight.

Thursday, December 21st
9:30 am to 11 am

Colorado National Monument Saddlehorn Visitor Center & CNMA Bookstore

Dive into the Hight’s newest release, Past & Present, Fruita that beautifully captures the evolution of Fruita over the decades. From cherished landmarks to enduring structures, this book weaves together the threads of time, showcasing both the transformations and timeless charm that defines Fruita.

Past & Present Fruita is a 96-page book filled with “then and now” photos of various buildings and street scenes in Fruita, primarily focusing on the downtown area. In addition to the Fruita photos, the book also includes a few images of Colorado National Monument. The images from the past were taken by a variety of photographers over different decades. The photos show how much Fruita has changed – and what has remained the same – throughout Fruita’s history.

Denise and Steve Hight are local historians who have written three books and dozens of articles about the history of their adopted hometown, Fruita.

Meet the authors in person and purchase your signed copy of Past & Present, Fruita. A perfect gift for a loved one or for your personal library. Denise and Steve will also bring their updated “Fruita Past & Present” photo board exhibit.

Current Colorado National Monument Association Members receive 20% off their purchases at the CNMA Bookstore throughout the month of December. *Some exclusions apply.
