The first sheriff of Routt County, and first permanent resident of the Yampa Valley, was a man named Joe Morgan. This was back in 1877. Actually, it was in the Craig area, because Moffat County was actually Routt County at the time. The Museum of Northwest Colorado in Craig, has just acquired some of Sheriff Morgan’s possessions from his grandson. Paul Knowles is the assistant director of the museum in Craig.

A display is being made at the museum, highlighting the sheriff’s items. You can see a video and pictures on our website and Facebook page.
