Throwback Thursday collections spotlight: Love seat made from Rocky Mountain big horn sheep horns, circa 1910. The unique seat was made by Steamboat Springs’ most notable early-day carpenters, Ernest Campbell (builder of the museum's Zimmerman house). The sheep horns were collected by Campell in Canada. The Museum owns several pieces of furniture like this made out of moose paddles, elk antlers, and more.
