Dawson Ranch Survey: Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site, Colorado
Tom Noel and Jacqui Ainlay-Conley
Dawson Ranch is located within the Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site in Kiowa County, on the eastern plains of Colorado. The historic site memorializes an attack on Cheyenne and Arapaho people by Colorado militiamen in 1864. This project involved surveying and assessing National Register of Historic Places eligibility of the twentieth-century ranch complex and possible nineteenth-century cowboy line camp ruins.
