I Bet You Didn’t Know

 

The St. Vrain Pioneers were hard-working, adventuresome people, but I’ll bet you didn’t know much of what they did to

build the community in the earliest of days. Did you know that some of them were road viewers – the men who had enough

influence to convince their neighbors that a new road should be built even if it ran along or across a neighbor’s property?

Did you know how many of them were paid by the County to do work such as delivering subpoenas or conducting school censuses?

Did you know if any of them pledged funds for the University of Colorado, or bought stock in one of the two railroads that came

into Boulder County in the 1870s? Did you know that it was common for families to have property in town and on farms

or in the mountains? I’m willing to bet that there are a few things that you didn’t know about your pioneer ancestors.
