A Brief History of the Beckwith Ranch:

The Beckwith Ranch, established in 1874 by brothers Elton and Edwin Beckwith, was at its peak one of the largest cattle operations in Colorado. Sons of a wealthy shipbuilder from Mount Desert Island, Maine, Elton and Edwin brought cattle from Texas in 1869 for the miners in Colorado with Charles Goodnight, one of the legendary founders of the western cattle industry.
