The Town of Raymer was established in 1888 along a new line of the Colorado and Wyoming Railroad Company running from Sterling to Cheyenne. Homesteaders from eastern Nebraska settled the town in the 1880s, drawn to the area by claims of fertile, lush land ripe for cultivation. Unfortunately, this was a far cry from the actual conditions of the arid grasslands. The feasibility of an agricultural economy improved with the passage of the Enlarged Homestead Act in 1909, which provided larger homestead tracts for farming. This again drew people to the area and in 1910 the townsite was platted and recorded as the Town of Raymer. Before the days of zip codes, the post office changed Raymer to New Raymer to avoid confusion with Ramah, Colorado. Development followed immediately thereafter, when W.M. Truxaw purchased the first lot along Centre Avenue on the same day it was platted. He constructed the Truxaw and Krueger Grocery building, which would later become the post office. Stores, shops, hotels and businesses soon followed, creating a thriving downtown core along Centre Avenue. Newspaper advertisements show that a variety of businesses served the town in the 1910s and 1920s, including hardware stores, liveries, stables and bakeries, hotels, drug stores, a tractor dealership, gas stations, and a bank. The town population declined in the 1930s due to drought and economic depression. This decline continued into the next decades, and by the 1960s most of the businesses along Centre Avenue had closed. Despite these changes, New Raymer remained a gathering place for the surrounding population. Descendants of the early pioneers that settled New Raymer still reside in the nearby rural areas. They continue to farm and ranch in the area, and come to town to meet for church, school and social activities. Many of the families have known one another for generations, and the community hopes to keep these stories and relationships alive by revitalizing the downtown core. The majority of the buildings along Centre Avenue have changed little since first constructed in the 1910s and 1920s. The town is emblematic of the many small agricultural market centers that once thrived throughout the plains region of northeastern Colorado. Colorado Preservation, Inc. believes restoration of the Post Office building can serve as a catalyst for downtown and serve as an example for similar communities.
Not the best video. The mic was too close the the drums. This does give you a good idea of what we do though.
#gazabworld Mike the Headless Chicken, also known as zombie chicken. In Fruita, Colorado. On September 10, 1945, Lloyd Olsen was making dinner for his mother .decided it was time for Mike to become a part of someone’s dinner, so he beheaded the animal.The cockerel refused to die, though, and after a short run around, he settled down as if nothing had happened. Mike even (unsuccessfully) tried to peck for food, so the farmer decided to let the chicken be. The very next morning he found Mike sleeping, still alive, so Olsen decided to take care of the freaky miracle. He began feeding Mike with water, milk, and small pieces of corn. The farmer would deposit food directly into chicken’s throat, using a small eyedropper.Mike survived the beheading because the farmer’s hatchet missed his jugular vein, so the cockerel only lost his sight and a piece of his brain that wasn’t responsible for the vital functions of his body. Mike only became clumsier than he was when he had a head. Soon, the local newspaper wrote an article about the miraculous chicken, and Olsen received an offer to take the headless bird on a traveling sideshow across the United States. Their road adventure began, and Mike’s fame grew as they traveled between cities.People would pay to see the headless rooster, so at the peak of his fame, Mike earned his owner around $4,500 per month.Mike lived like a star and died as one too. On March 17, 1947, while Mike and his owner were spending the night in a Phoenix motel, the chicken choked on a kernel of corn. Olsen didn’t have the necessary equipment to save him, so Mike died, leaving his tour unfinished. By Gazabworld gazab world
