 Kit Carson, Greenwood County Gazetteer Surnames A ~ Z

The county seat of Greenwood County, is located in the eastern-central portion of Colorado, on the Kansas Pacific railway. After the railway reached this point, and previous to its completion to Denver, it was the place of transfer for all freights and passengers over the road, destined for Southern Colorado, New and Old Mexico.

This made the trade of the place important, and large hotels, and trading and forwarding and commission houses wore established, and a heavy amount of business transacted The number of men employed in these, and in constructing the railroad, made the population considerable, and local business very brisk in 1870, but since the completion of the Kansas Pacific to Denver, both population and business has rapidly decreased.

However, a large amount of freight for New and Old Mexico, and Southern Colorado, is still reshipped at this point, which, in connection with the fact that the town is an important station on the railway, makes it quite an active trading post.
