Park County Historical Society website update




Several files have been added to the "Resources" section of our website. They include the 1874 Homestead Land Patent for William L. Bailey and several detailed Sanborn Fire Insurance Survey Maps for Alma and Fairplay 1896 through 1910. These survey maps show buildings by function and owner.

The following example shows the Summer Brewery and Saloon at South Park City - along with an "ice pond" about where the Visitor Center parking lot is today. A feature I have never heard of before.

Really informative maps......but, only if you like "old stuff".

Here is an 1888 drawing from "Halls History" that shows the Summer Brewery and the "Ice Pond" about where the SPC Visitor Center parking lot is located today. The large building next to the street is the Summer Saloon.

Thanks goes to Jerry Davis - Park County Local History Archives for finding this drawing.
