Description
This collection contains 54 documents kept by Sidney A. Shepperd, secretary of the Owego Mining Company and railroad ticket agent 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.
Background
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.
