Promoting the history, culture, and genealogy of the
Northeastern Colorado Plains
Contact us

Colorado isn't generally known for its plains, and yet the majority of the state is covered by rolling grasslands and prairies which house family farms, cattle ranches and settlements, large and small.

Our plains carry a history of the Pawnee and the Arapahoe, of the early inhabitants, the settlers, the immigrants, and the hardscrabble farmers of the 20s and 30s.They came here to settle, to raise families, to build a life on the land.

These pages are a tribute to the rich heritage found here on the grasslands and the prairies, and to the strength of the people who lived our history: the natives and pioneers and workers of the land and those who founded the cities and towns. This is our history, these are our lives.
