Golden City and Arapahoe Ditch Company Minutes (1876-1879); Mary J. Hyatt Account Book (1890-1893)
Scope and Contents
Small book containing meeting minutes of the Golden City and Arapahoe Ditch Company (later the Farmers' High Line Canal) from April 10, 1876 to September 15, 1879, recorded by Secretary A.L. Hyatt. Meetings were held at the brick school house at Ralston Creek. Book also contains the by-laws of the company and some accounting notes. In addition, the book seems to have served as an account book of Mary J. Hyatt, who owned a considerable amount of property, with lists of properties for sale; notes held by Mary Hyatt; city, state and county warrants held by her; and warrants bought for T.R. Simmons dated 1890-1893. The relationship of that section of the book to the Golden City and Arapahoe Ditch Company requires further review. Mary Hyatt was Governor Vivian's aunt and the wife of the ditch company's secretary and Jefferson County Clerk A. L. Hyatt.
