Rural "country doctors” with no vaccines, no laboratory tests, and not many effective medicines had a challenging time in 1900.

Travel back in time to a place where indoor plumbing was non-existent and homes were heated by burning wood or coal. Work was hard and physical, and accidents happened frequently. There were no vaccines, almost no laboratory tests, and very few effective medicines. This is the Surface Creek Valley in 1900.

Join us as Cedaredge pharmacist, John Breitnauer, and interns take us back in time.

Cedaredge High School Student, Hunter R. Voss, talks about the history of trains in Colorado, focusing on developments that changed the SCV.

 

The Transcontinental Railroad was completed on May 10, 1969, when the final spike was driven into the ground at Promontory Summit, Utah, but this route did not go through Colorado. As the population of the territory grew, it was the job of the rail companies to connect the state, even before there were roads and highways.

This presentation will take us from 1856 when the first railway in Colorado was built to the present-day railroad companies.
