Anita Thompson, Hunter S. Thompson’s widow, has announced that she is planning to open a museum dedicated to the father of gonzo journalism at their Owl Farm retreat in rural Colorado. The always outrageous author lived at the Aspen area farm from 1969 until his suicide in February 2005.
The notorious compound is currently home to the Gonzo Foundation, but off-limits to fans. Although it has been the site of cannabis legalization events.
As you might expect from a Hunter S. Thompson-related project, there is no firm launch date for the museum project. Anita Thompson has indicated that the site will focus on Thompson’s literary legacy, activist journalism, American literature and politics.
