Bear Creek Toll Road Ledger, 1886-1889

Series 207 (One Volume)

Ledger book for the Bear Creek Toll Road. The Bear Creek Wagon Road Company was incorporated in 1874 to operate a toll road running from Morrison in Jefferson County along Bear Creek to Hick's Mill in Clear Creek County. Responsibility for the road was handed over to the Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners in 1886 after the road washed out several times due to its location in the bed of the gulch. The County operated it as a toll road until 1889. This ledger book lists the date, name of traveler, amount charged for toll, and total amount collected per day between December 27, 1886 and January 1889 under county operation. At the back are lists of monthly expenses incurred for 1887.
