For this week’s Hometown Hero, the Craig Press is pleased to honor Dan Davidson.

Davidson has been a driving force for the Museum of Northwest Colorado for decades, including moving the site to its current location at 590 Yampa Avenue to reutilize Craig’s former armory.

Under Davidson’s direction, museum staff are a wellspring of information about the history of Craig and Moffat County, and Davidson himself provides plenty of knowledge about the area for any visitor who walks through the museum’s doors.

Despite funding difficulties in recent years, Davidson and the museum continue to preserve the unique past of Northwest Colorado.

Merriam-Webster defines a “hero” as a person admired for achievements and noble qualities. Who’s your hometown hero? A local first responder? Your neighbor? A co-worker? A friend?
