Rocky Mountain News – December 28, 1879 – Farmers’ Institute at Monument

Rocky Mountain News, December 28, 1879

The faculty of the State Agricultural college [at Greeley] will hold a farmers’ institute at Monument on Friday evening, January 2, and continuing over Saturday. Dairying is an important interest on the “divide,” and it is proposed to make this interest prominent in the discussion of the institute.

The Denver & Rio Grande railway has kindly agreed to carry passengers to and from Monument during the institute at half rates from all stations between Denver and Colorado Springs, and the Monument hotels will accommodate visitors at special rates, so that a trip to this flourishing agricultural and dairying portion can be made at very little expense.
