Nottingham-Albertson Ranch – CO. Great Ranches of the West


“Nottingham had traveled from Iowa to the Rocky Mountain valleys with his wife and five small children in 1882. He’d met Ernest Hurd and a third settler near the town of Redcliff, and the three men proposed a ranching partnership. The trio bought 480 acres, brimming with all the excitement and hope that a new business venture in the Wild West brought. But soon tragedy overshadowed the enterprise when the third partner committed suicide. Nottingham and Hurd began quarreling over rising debt and other business issues. Hurd’s solution to these arguments with his partner hung in a holster at his side. ”
