Historyfrom Cultural Contexts report, 2004 St. Vrain, Golden City & Colorado Wagon Road (1859) This toll road was incorporated by John W. McIntyre, J. M. Ferrell, Henry Gunnell, and Lucien W. Bliss, with an intended route from Fort St. Vrain on the South Platte River in northeast Colorado through Golden and west to Saratoga West (Hot Sulphur Springs) on the Blue Fork of the Colorado River. The company built a bridge across the South Platte River at St. Vrain and constructed the road southwest to Golden. Bypassing Denver, the road joined the Denver, Auraria & Colorado Wagon Road north of Mount Vernon Canyon at Mount Vernon Junction and continued through Bergen Park to Bradford Junction (Conifer) and on to South Park.
