A major objective and mandate of the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Department of the Interior, is to preserve and study cultural resources, particularly historic and prehistoric properties. Evidences of our history and heritage cover large areas of public domain under BLM jurisdiction. This study concerns historic sites and values located on and around public lands in Colorado.
Man's use occupation of the northwestern corner of Colorado dates from about 10,000 years. The first recorded men were the Ute Indians; early Europeans found these natives thriving in the area. The Spanish were the first to see this region, reaching the White River in 1776.
