 Freeland was also known as Trail Creek camp. It was established in 1877 and had a Post Office from 1879 to 1908.

A viewer writes - July 7, 2005 - Hi - My name is Peggy and I'm from Idaho Falls.  I'm investigating the life of my great-grandparents who lived for a time in Freeland, Co - perhaps in one of the dugouts or log cabins included in your picture.  My great-grandfather, Melville Goodrich, was mining in the area - I believe for gold.  I am going to Colorado in a week and would like to visit Freeland, but I've no idea where it is.  Could anyone provide directions?  Thank you!

A viewer writes - April 6, 2009 - My grandmother was born in Freeland in 1880 her name was Millicent Tenby Roberts, her Mother was Emily Louisa Roberts (nee cocks) and her father Samuel Joseph Roberts, Is there any way I can get a copy of her birth certificate are there any records available. Any help appreciated Thank You!

I just got to see your site I was interested in Freeland Colorado as my grandmother was born there around 1881/2 her parents were tin miners and traveled across USA to British Columbia and then back to England. I found it great to see pictures of this area and it look beautiful. Have you any information on Freeland around 1880/1882 as I have no record of granny's birth or much about her parents Emily and Samuel Roberts. Thank you for your time
