Blazing the Trail: Colorado Jewish History
Ongoing | Lower Level, outside Special Collections (Room 101)
The Gold Rush of 1859 brought the first Jewish Settlers to Colorado in search of opportunity and adventure. The unpredictability of gold mining and a growing demand for supplies encouraged many of the early Jewish pioneers to open small businesses. By the 1870s, Jewish families helped to establish stable communities in Denver as well as Leadville, Central City, Trinidad, and Pueblo as part of Colorado's development. This exhibit traces the central role of Denver's early Jews in the city's growth and prosperity.
