Biographical / Historical

In 1908, landowners with water rights in the Agricultural and Welch ditches voted in favor of forming a new irrigation district to be known as the Golden-Littleton Irrigation District. The district would be comprised of all land lying between West Colfax Ave. and Bear Creek, and Denver and the foothills. Promoters planned to bring the water of Williams Fork of the Grand river on the western slope through the continental divide by means of a three mile long tunnel and then into the Clear Creek watershed. The district was dissolved in 1915.
