A Thumbnail Sketch of Morrison, Colorado, by Dan Rohrer


A group of photos, letters and news clippings about the famous hackberry tree on Arvada's Hackberry Hill, compiled by the Archives. In 1936, the Colorado Highway Department and Works Progress Administration (WPA) planned to straighten Wadsworth Ave. over the top of the hill requiring destruction of the tree. Due to citizen opposition, the State made plans to transplant the tree instead. A ditch was dug around it in preparation for the move. However, one night in January, 1937, an Arvada man, tired of all the fuss, cut the tree down before they could finish the job.
