The Kokomo Fire of 1881

Although the articles can be somewhat difficult to read, they are worth the time. These newspaper clippings describe a fire in the town of Kokomo, Colorado in 1881. How would the population have been affected? Who stayed? Who left? Who lost property, who rebuilt? 

Imagine: "Less than twenty houses remaining."
