More Than Place: Colorado, Women, and Land

From Indigenous keepers of the land in Colorado’s mountains and plains to Mexican Land Grants and the Homestead Act of 1862, to building communities in rural Colorado, women have played an integral and often invisible role in shaping the land of our state. In More Than Place: Colorado, Women, and Land, the Center for Colorado Women’s History examines the legacies of Western women, their role and place on the land, challenges perceptions of access, and centers diverse communities of Colorado women.
