Map Month: Images of Colorado, A Century of Printed Views, 1822-1922

Ages: Adult


There were only a few printed images of what is today Colorado before the Pikes Peak gold rush of 1858-59. Once gold seekers poured into the region, followed by other settlers, prints began to appear of the settlements and natural beauty of Colorado. The history of these printed views provides a unique window on Colorado over the years.
