Location:  Summit Historical Society’s 1883 Dillon Schoolhouse

After the Civil War, the U.S. government realized the great need for accurate surveys of the American
West. Between 1867 and 1879, four great federal surveys were established, covering much of the region
west of the 100th degree of longitude. One of these was the U.S. Geological and Geographical Survey of
the Territories, run by Ferdinand V. Hayden. This included Hayden’s survey of Colorado between 1873
to 1876. This was the first comprehensive survey of the territory, which when finished made Colorado the
best mapped state in the Union, a fact demonstrated in Hayden’s great Atlas of Colorado (1878).

  • Space is limited to 30 guests.
