About

Located on the Eastern Plains of Colorado, the town of Holyoke began in 1887 as a small camp for railroad builders on the Burlington Railway system and quickly became the commercial hub for the farming and ranching districts that surrounded it. The area thrived until the 1890s, when severe drought decimated the population. By the turn of the century, however, conditions improved, and an influx of homesteaders came to Logan and Phillips counties to take up abandoned claims and file new ones.
