Title: Lifetime Membership to Elitch Gardens, Denver, Given to Charles Lindbergh

Description: Silver lifetime membership to Elitch Gardens, Denver, CO, given to Charles Lindbergh on August 31, 1927, while he was visiting Denver on his 48 State Tour. "Elitch Gardens was home to the United States' oldest summer-stock theater company from 1897 until 1963, created and developed by John and Mary Elitch, and was ready to open for its first season in 1897. The delay was due to the fact that John, himself a performer, died in 1891 at the age of 41. His wife dedicated the theatre to her handsome husband's memory, and lived next to it, keeping it going until her death in 1936. When the grounds closed in 1994 to make room for developers, a stipulation was made that the theatre must never be demolished, and it is now, in fact, being renovated, turning into a repository for Denver theatrical memorabilia. Its new name will be the Center for American Theatre at Historic Elitch Gardens." (Wikipedia)
