The 200th anniversary of Sam Colt's birth happens on July 19, 2014. In his honor, several groups will gather at Colt Park, Church of the Good Shepherd, Colt Armory and other sites around Coltsville for a celebration. Costumed historical personalities, carriage rides, vintage base ball, tours, kids' activities and demonstrations are some of the things in store. Join us as we celebrate a man who helped to change history.
