DEARFIELD POSTER c. 1931 In 1919 Colorado Route 24, also part of the Platte Valley Road, ran through the towns of Loveland, Greeley, Dearfield, Goodrich, Weldona and Fort Morgan. By 1931 the newly completed concrete Highway 34 in part prompted O. T. Jackson to produce posters and pamphlets to advertise Dearfield. They promised a "valley resort" with food, entertainment, dancing, fishing, and other recreations. These were posted in primarily black neighborhoods from Colorado Springs, through Denver, and on up to Cheyenne. Copy from City of Greeley Museums Collection #AI-0248
