In View of the Mountains
 

A History of Fort Morgan, Colorado

Authored by Jennifer Patten

Fort Morgan is a town named for a short-lived military fort (1864-1868), but Fort Morgan's history isn't just military; it is linked with the movement west, with the telegraph and railroads - and with gold. The history of Fort Morgan may never rival that of Denver or glisten with the same gold dust of the mountain mining towns, but this town on the plains was central to the story of the Romantic west; connected to the major events of the age. Everyone has a history and every place is central to a story. What follows is the story from the land - of the land - on which Fort Morgan would rise.
