Buffalo Creek

-A A +A

The town of Buffalo Creek (1878, 6,750 feet) was established along the Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad, whose grade and stone trestle and bridge foundations are still evident. The firm of Serrie and Geddes, leading early-day stonemasons and contractors in Denver, opened a large granite quarry here. They produced stone cemetery markers and building stone used for, among many other landmark structures, Cheesman Dam (see Douglas County).
