Description


This is a stunning 1904 broadside bird's eye view or map of Gilpin County, Colorado. Centered on Central City, this view extends as far north as Rollinsville and Arapahoe Peak, as far south as Bellevue Mountain, as far east as Randolph Mill, and west as far as Nugget. In 1859 John H. Gregory discovered gold high in the Rocky Mountains near Denver. The subsequent gold rush was one of the richest in U.S. history and contributed significantly to the settling and development of Colorado in the mid to late 19th century. This stunning view, issued by the Gilpin County Chamber of Commerce and the Colorado map publisher George Samuel Clason in 1904, chronicles the history of the Colorado Gold Rush as well as the development of the Central City region. Notes the site where Gregory first discovered of gold, the point where Albert Bierstadt pained his famous 'Storm in the Rockies,' various gold claims, waterways, proposed railroads, mills, and settlements. Identifies this historic gold mining town of Central City, Blackhawk, Russell, Apex, American City, Nugget, Rollinsville, Perigo, Gilpin and Pactolus. Drawn by George W. Schneider, a mining engineer in Central City, and printed as a four color lithograph by George Samuel Clason of Denver, Colorado.
