Greeley History Museum

It is safe to say that these are historic and challenging times. Across our region and throughout the world people are grieving the loss of Elijah McClain, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and so many other African Americans and people of color that have been harmed by the abuses of power in our society. Though City of Greeley Museums’ sites are closed, we are continually working to create a more welcoming space for all, to share a more inclusive narrative, and to document and preserve the rich and diverse history of our community.

One way Greeley Museums is working towards these goals is by continuing its participation in the Dearfield Dream Project. Museums Manager Sarah Saxe joined Emeritus Professor Bob Brunswig, Professor George Junne, and students Yessica Berumen and Edwardo Maya, all from University of Northern Colorado, UNC, in their archaeology field program at the early 20th century African-American town-site of Dearfield, Colorado, 24 miles east of Greeley. Current Colorado State Historical Fund-supported fieldwork focuses on the former residence and workplace of Dearfield’s blacksmith and mechanic, Squire Brockman, who lived there from 1919 through 1953. This summer’s fieldwork is just one aspect of the Dearfield Dream Project, a collaboration between UNC, Black American West Museum & Heritage Center, City of Greeley Government, Colorado State University, and others to preserve the Dearfield town-site and to increase knowledge of Dearfield’s contribution to African-American efforts for economic self-sufficiency and social justice. Greeley Museums will store artifacts uncovered during this summer’s field program and plans are in progress for an upcoming exhibition.
