Colorado Fuel and Iron: Culture and Industry in Southern Colorado


Men, women, and children from many different backgrounds and nationalities came to Southern Colorado around the turn of the twentieth century. Some were pulled here by the promise of a better life, while others were compelled to leave their homelands by forces outside of their control.
