The Boulder County Commissioner’s Journal, 1871-1874, continues where the first Journal left off. Citizens in Boulder built new roads and fixed up old ones, paid for the care and keep of paupers, and maintained law and order. The County Commissioners hired and paid for work on behalf of the county, chose grand and petit jurors, appointed road viewers and overseers, and took applications for business licenses. If you had ancestors in Boulder during this time period, chances are pretty good that they’re mentioned in this journal.

The Masons have a history in Colorado longer than the state or territory itself. The first Masonic lodges formed in the area were done so under dispensation from the Grand Lodges of Kansas and Nebraska until Colorado became a Territory in 1861 and formed its own Grand Lodge. Between the time Colorado became a territory in 1861 and a state in 1876, thirty-one Masonic lodges were formed with the help of more than 4,000 local men whose names are included in this index. The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Colorado often included news from Masons in other states, as well as the names of officers of the other Grand Lodges around the county. Their names are also included.

If you had an ancestor in the Boulder area before 1871, chances are good that he (and sometimes she) is mentioned in the County Commissioner’s journal. Boulder County was one of the original 17 counties established when Colorado became a territory on 14 February 1861. The Boulder County Commissioner’s Journal, 1861-1871, chronicles the building of the county and the people who helped build it. During that time, citizens in Boulder built new roads, a jail and a courthouse, paid for the care and keep of paupers, and maintained law and order. All the while, the County Commissioners hired and paid for work on behalf of the county, chose grand and petit jurors, appointed road viewers and overseers, and took applications for business licenses.  Includes an index to the original journal as well as an index to this modern version.
