Museo de las Tres Colonias
The Museo de las Tres Colonias provides a living history highlighting Hispanic life, working conditions in the sugar beet industry and community life, most specifically within the Tres Colonias, Buckingham, Andersonville, and Alta Vista, during the Twentieth Century.

Northern Colorado History
As Meg Dunn writes about Northern Colorado History, whether she’s writing about an ad in an old newspaper or a Northern Colorado family that’s lived here for several generations, expect to see patterns among the stories that seek to define and describe the character and culture of Northern Colorado as it was, as it is, and perhaps to even shed light on what it will eventually grow to be.

Overland Trail
The Overland Trail ran westward from Atchison, Kansas, following the Oregon Trail more or less, with some diversions created by Ben Holladay, such as the Oketo Cutoff in Kansas. At Julesburg, Colorado, it essentially left the Oregon Trail, paralleling, on the south side, the South Platte River to Latham (present day Greeley). Latham was a junction: one could travel south to the Cherry Creek settlement of Denver, or cross the river and loop north along the foothills, following the established Cherokee Trail, crossing the Cache la Poudre River at LaPorte.

Red Feather Historical Society
The Red Feather Historical Society collects and preserves local histories for the public benefit the history of the region.

Sidney Heitman Germans From Russia Collection (CSU)
The collection documents early migration to Colorado settlements, religious and family matters, occupations, and social mobility. There is considerable material on the early sugar beet industry and the role of the Germans from Russia in its early growth, plus a general view of the history of Colorado from the perspective of this ethnic group. In addition to academic study, the collection is frequently used for genealogical research.
