Fort Amity Colorado 1902

Restored bird’s eye view map of Fort Amity near Holly, Colorado, 1902.   in 1899, the Salvation Army established the “Fort Amity” colony in Colorado, with the goal of eliminating urban poverty by providing “wasted” Colorado land to the urban poor for farms.  The Amity colony was settled by thirty families from Chicago and Iowa, each of whom received ten acres of land, livestock, and tools. By 1903, the colony had 450 residents.  Due to the alkalinity of the soil, it was not successful and eventually closed in 1909.
