Gold! The lure of the precious metal brought 1860s prospectors along the toll roads that met to form the nucleus of today’s Conifer. That era also brought Confederate guerrillas who buried a fortune in treasure and the Ute, Arapaho, and Cheyenne people who greeted the new settlers. Successful ranches grew, worked by families whose descendants still remain in the area and harvest the land’s bounty.

In later years, the area’s natural beauty inspired the creation of both the Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County Open Space parks systems, as well as the magnificent Staunton State Park. That same beauty led to housing developments with amazing views south to Pike’s Peak and north to Mount Evans.

Today, Conifer offers a glimpse of the past with its Yellow Barn and Little White Schoolhouse, as well as exciting new attractions such as the Venue and Stage Door theaters, the annual Elevation Celebration and Christmas Parade, and vibrant retail centers.

John Steinle is the former history education Supervisor for the Jefferson County open Space parks system. his career spanned nearly 40 years and included acting as director at several Ohio museums. This book was written through a partnership with Conifer Historical Society and Museum, and the group’s members contributed many of the featured photographs.

The images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
