Interesting and inspiring Colorado history

I visited a photography museum a year ago and enjoyed very much the black & white photos displayed which helped portray how hard Americans have worked over the years in developing a better society. Farming, small store fronts, train tracks and tamed wilderness with cozy homesteads are an inspiration for us today since in spite of limited resources individuals managed to actively participate in the dialogue for a better life. I sure will enjoy learning more about the history through images of the Colorado front range.
