Wells, Fargo & Co. Denver office in 1868

The Wells, Fargo & Co. operations in Colorado Territory were not nearly as extensive, or profitable, as their operations in most of the other areas of the West. In fact, Wells, Fargo & Co. stage coaches only operated in Colorado from late in 1866 until 1869. They operated during this time frame on two major divisions. A line from the Denver office at the corner of F and Holladay Streets along various overland routes to Wyoming or Kansas as well as a Mountain division that operated from Denver to Georgetown, via Black Hawk.
