Boulder County Agricultural Society ~ Colorado ~  1870

Like the parent society, at Denver, this institution has for its object the promotion of all Territorial industries, and has done its part towards increasing the general wealth of the Territory, by encouraging and fostering all agricultural, mining and manufacturing enterprises.

Although a youthful organization, it has the the growth and strength of manhood, and is under the management of gentlemen largely interested in the welfare of the county, and anxious and able to advance her interests in every way.

The grounds are finely located near Boulder City, and the buildings substantially constructed, and well suited to the purpose.

The exhibitions are held yearly, and are largely attended and well conducted. The usefulness of similar associations is well known in all countries, and the Boulder County Agricultural Society is not behind any other of its years, with equal facilities, and is a credit to the county and Territory. We regret our paucity of statistics concerning this institution, as we are not able to give its present officers and directors, but know of its general good reputation and prosperity, and feel assured that its growth will be commensurate with that of the county and Territory.
