Downtown Jefferson

The ranching town of Jefferson was established when the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad arrived in 1879. During the late 1800s Jefferson became a commercial hub for the South Park Hay Company. With seven contributing sites, Main Street is eligible for listing as a National Historic District. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Jefferson Depot now functions as a real estate office. The nearby Wahl Ranch is also listed on the National Register.
