Company Towns: Labor Tales—East Coast vs. Colorado
I owe my soul to the company store. ~ Tennessee Ernie Ford
One Zoom Session
Thur., Apr. 11, 2024, 7-9 pm MT

Imagine your employer owning your home, your supermarket, schools and houses of worship. The company’s leaders set grocery and rent prices, hire the teachers and clergy, and pay your salary. Sound confining, or worse, a bit creepy? Join Rachael Storm, curator of Business & Industry at History Colorado, as she examines the industrialists who built company towns around the U.S. and in Colorado. Storm adds, “Companies still own towns today, just in different ways.”
