Thank you for your comment. I'm very pleased that your mother discovered my Barney Ford blog and that it is helpful to you for your research purposes.

I am amazed to read about all of the accomplishments Ford made.

Is Ford Drive in the metro area named after Barney Ford?

Hi Eric,
The Barney Ford Drive in Breckridge, Colorado 80424 is named for Barney Ford. There is also a Barney Ford Trail (hiking) in Breckridge named for him. Barney Ford Hill also in Breckridge is named for him as well. It was a hill where Ford had staked a mining claim, but he was chased off of it and taken over by whites who didn't want him there. I could not find a Ford Drive match for Barney Ford in the Denver metro area.
