Free! Take a correct county map of Kansas Pacific Railway, Kansas and Colorado
Creator: Kansas Pacific Railway Company
Date: 1878
This eight column brochure advertises the advantages and benefits of visiting and/or settling in Colorado or Kansas. For Colorado, it is the size (larger than all of New England); the resorts (grand scenery); the climate (the climate and mineral springs are a medicine which is wrought with complete cures); the parks (one of the most wonderful features of the world); the mineral resources (gold and silver); and the fact that the health and pleasure resorts all can be reached by railroad (the Kansas Pacific Railway). For Kansas, it is the growing population, the agriculture, and the availability of land. In 1878 Kansas became the number one producer of wheat in the United States and over 45 per cent of that was produced and then shipped on Kansas Pacific Railway lands. The reverse side of the brochure is a map of the Kansas Pacific Railway routes from Kansas City and Leavenworth to the west, including Kit Carson, La Junta. Denver, Trinidad, Del Norte, and Greeley in Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
