—Jamestown Settlement —


Although the region was explored first by the Spanish, this possession was controlled by the French. The dispute was settled in 1763 in favor of the French. Few attempts were made to colonize it until the mid-19th century. The eastern portion of the area was sold to the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase, but the western part was claimed by Mexico until after the Mexican War in 1848. The state was formed from the Colorado Territory, organized in 1861 after the discovery of gold and silver in the region.

1549-Possibly explored by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado for Spain 1858-Permanently settled by Americans for traders and miners 1876-Admitted to the Union as the 38th state.
