Reprints: 1887 — New Eldorado takes shape

Lafayette, the new town on the Miller Farm, was platted last Monday. Simpson & Son have the engine set up at the new mine, and are pushing the development of the same and other matters concerning the welfare of the new camp at the best of their ability. We are looking every day for the Union Pacific company to start work on a branch track from here to that new Eldorado.

Dispatch from the Louisville Critic newspaper printed in the Jully 22, 1887 Rocky Mountain News.
