It is so important to have access to history like this! Thank you preserving and sharing such an amazing part of Colorado's History.


Thank you for your comment. Colorado does have an amazing history and I'm happy to share it!


We are looking to learn more about the history of Black homesteaders in Colorado as part of a homeschool project, which has of course led us to Dearfield. Thank you for this information, and we are excited to visit and learn more!

Hi Amy - Thanks for reading and commenting! There are a lot of really great resources at DPL, including a lot of good material on Dearfield. Be sure and visit our Blair-Caldwell branch, too and don't hesitate to give us a call if you need any assistance! 


I wonder if my Great Grandfather Orange Talton and Great Grandmother Minnie Talton was part of this settlement they migrated from Tennessee to Colorado over 100 years ago.
