LOT AND BLOCK BOOK FOR CENTRAL CITY, COLORADO  CIRCA 1880
Transcribed & Introduction by ALAN GRANRUTH in 1998 for FhGS
 
Claims were made to surface rights to property in Central City as early as 1859.  The Federal Government granted a patent to the City of Central in 1875 for 578 acres.  The land was surveyed and laid out in Lots and Blocks.  In 1876 the city began issuing deeds to individuals who applied for them.  These were known as “Mayor’s Deeds” since they were signed by the Mayor as Grantor.
 
This listing of lots and blocks was transcribed from a photo copy of a Central City Street Survey @1880 in the possession of the Gilpin County Historical Society.  The original survey was in a lined and bound notebook of 241 pages.  The book contained the following information:
 
Page(s)
  • 1 – 5, 74 – 77, 200 – 209, 238 - 241   Missing or blank.
  • 6 - 73        Name and legal description of each street in the city;
  • 78 - 199    Name of lot owner, lot number(s), block number, size of lot in feet for front, rear and sides, remarks (mainly where conflicts in ownership exist);
  • 210 - 237   Alphabetical listing of lot owners.
The purpose of this transcription is to provide an alphabetical listing of individuals who were known to have claims to land in Central City @1880.  Owning a lot or lots at this time does not necessarily mean the individual resided in Central City at this time.  There were also a number of conflicts as to ownership of specific lots.  These were ignored since the purpose of this transcription was solely to note people who claimed title to real property at that time.
