Harriet Peck Farnsworth family

by Farnsworth, Harriet Peck

Abstract

Historic documentation of life at the turn of the 19th century created by residents of Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1901 for the citizens of 2001. Under the direction of Louis R. Ehrich, a prominent 19th century businessman, the items were sealed in a chest which was stored in various buildings on the Colorado College campus until the official opening January 1, 2001 at the Charles Leaming Tutt Library. Contents of Ms349, Fd 119, Harriet Peck Farnsworth family include: 1 10-page, handwritten letter, dated July 28, 1901, addressed “Dear Great Grandchildren,” signed by Harriet Peck Farnsworth; 2 b&w photos: “Harriet Peck Farnsworth” and two little girls, presumably Alice and Edith Farnsworth, granddaughters of Harriet; 2 envelopes addressed “A Letter to the Descendants of Mrs. Harriet P. Farnsworth, Year 2000.”
