Ten Things You Didn't Know About the Mishawaka

The Mishawaka was homesteaded in 1916, which makes it one of the oldest venues in Colorado. It sits 23 miles from Fort Collins, in Roosevelt National Park, nestled between the raging Poudre river and a canyon wall. It has hosted legends such as Leon Russel, George Clinton, Bela Fleck and hundreds more on its rustic stage.

Its age and location aren't the only thing that makes the Mish an interesting venue. Its a place with a remarkable, improbable story -- much of which is detailed in this week's feature. But we couldn't fit every odd fact or close call into that story, so we've also compiled a list of the highlights.
