Joseph Yates

Joseph Yates (1881-1883)

Came to Colorado in 1872 from Missouri by rail. Settling in Boulder County, the Yates family resided by turns over the next 50 years in Caribou, Sugarloaf, near the "Golden Age" mine at Jamestown, in Sunshine, Boulder, and Magnolia.

Elected Sheriff in 1881, the highlight of his administration was the construction of the new county courthouse and jail on Pearl Street, between 13th and 14th Streets.
