Omer Humble recently stepped down as president of the Idaho Springs Historical Society, saying it’s time to try retirement again.
Humble, 86, a longtime volunteer, replaced Bob Bowland as president in 2012.
“The reason that I stepped down is I want to try one more time to retire. I did it a couple of decades ago,” Humble joked.
The historical society’s board will choose Humble’s replacement this week.
Executive director Nancy Johnson said Humble was insightful in his role as president.
