Creation: 1901

After the Civil War, telegraph and railroad companies created new demands for natural resources. The four major western survey expeditions mapped geological features and mineral resources of the Western Territories targeting military posts and exploring canyonlands and territories. In 1870, William Henry Jackson joined Ferdinand Hayden’s group surveying Wyoming and the Western Territories. He eventually settled in Denver, near Point Sublime, where he worked as a landscape photographer.
