Subdivisions in Jefferson County, Colorado developed from the late 1910s to the early 1950s, often had covenants that included race-based exclusionary language concerning who could and who could not own the houses. 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.”

Registration is required. There are 22 seats available.
