    The Lewis-Jones Gang

    The Palmer Lake Historical Society Presents
    "THE FRANK LEWIS-DALE JONES GANG"

    Join us on for a fascinating and informative evening as Dwight Haverkorn, retired Colorado Springs Police Investigator, takes us back to the early 1900s when the Frank Lewis-Dale Jones Gang terrorized the Colorado Springs area. Between 1913 and 1918, the Gang killed nine police officers and was involved in a deadly shootout in Colorado Springs in September 1918.

    Several years ago, Dwight kept us spellbound as he recounted the 1911 ax murders in Colorado Springs. Now he returns to tell us about the Gang that perfected the use of the getaway car to flee bank robberies. Dale Jones and Marge Dean, the Gang's getaway car driver, died in a hail of police bullets in November 1918, just like Bonnie and Clyde were to meet their end many years later.

    This program is free. Free refreshments will be served following the program.
