Gold Triggered Development

Gold was discovered near Gold Hill, west of Boulder, and the Boulder City Town Company was formed on February 10 and Boulder became a supply base for the miners. The town grew to a population of 343 by 1870, with these settlers defying the terms of the Fort Laramie Treaty. The first irrigation ditch in Boulder County was dug, and coal was discovered in the Marshall area southeast of Boulder.
