Race-based real estate developments in Jefferson County, Colorado

November 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

A virtual GIS Day event from the Colorado School of Mines.

Subdivisions in Jefferson County, Colorado developed from the late 1910s to the early 1950s, often had covenants that included race-based exclusionary language.  The covenants were rules that governed who and who could not own the property within that subdivision.  The covenants were legal documents (now voided) that were approved by Jefferson County government officials.  An example of this language is: “No persons of any race other than the Caucasian race shall use or occupy any building or any lot.” 

You must register for the event to attend.
