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.
Please bring a covered dish and your own table service. Rolls, butter and drinks will be furnished.
A collection will be taken to help with expenses.
The St. Vrain Valley Pioneer Association includes all of Boulder County, Weld County west of the Platte River and Larimer County south of the Poudre River.
Please invite those who are eligible to attend; other guests are welcome, too.
