In the Footsteps of the Iron Horse: the influence of railroads on the settlement of Colorado

Presenter:  Larry Dorsey, Superior Historian

From territorial days on, railroads played a huge role in the settlement and development of Colorado. Our program In the Footprint of the Iron Horse will examine just how the railroads influenced the growth of towns and industry in our state. Larry Dorsey is our presenter for this trip back in time. He is a retired history teacher from the Boulder Valley Schools, a volunteer and Trustee at the Colorado Railroad Museum and the Chair of the Superior Historical Commission in Superior, Colorado. He also hopes to be able to include a few helpful hints for genealogists in the area of railroad history.
