The Idaho Springs Historical Society’s newest president, Rick Wells, hopes to bring more young people and technology into the museum.
Wells was recently chosen to replace former president Omer Humble, who stepped down to again try his hand at retirement. Humble said he was thrilled that Wells, who has been active in the Historical Society, will be his successor.
Wells, a registered nurse with St. Anthony Hospital, moved to Idaho Springs two years ago. He began volunteering with the Historical Society because of his passion for the past.
