This collection contains 54 documents kept by Sidney A. Shepperd, secretary of the Owego Mining Company and railroad ticket
for the Denver & Rio Grande/Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad. The material is chiefly related to the
Owego Mining Company, which operated primarily on two lodes near Georgetown, Colorado, and gives a good picture of the operation
of a small-time mining venture and the holdings
of a Denver businessman (Shepperd) during the Colorado mining boom years in the late 19th century.
The Owego Mining Company operated primarily out on two lodes in the hills outside of
Georgetown, Colorado: the Owego lode and the Brick Pomeroy Lode.
