Fort Morgan Cut-Off
The Fort Morgan Cut-Off of the Overland Stage Company (formerly the Central Overland, California, and Pike's Peak Express Company) passed through Adams County, Colorado. It was established in September 1862 as an offshoot of the Overland Trail. The established stage route traveled through the present day towns of Greeley and Laporte in northern Colorado. A connecting trail known as the Denver Road followed the South Platte River to Denver and the surrounding mining towns. The Fort Morgan Cut-off bypassed the stations between Fort Morgan, Colorado and Laporte and went directly to Denver.
