Jacobs Family Collection

This collection includes historic photographs of downtown Salida and of the Jacobs Family. George and Josephine Jacobs owned many properties around Salida; George was the caretaker of Riverside Park and the H Street School, and he was also a Fairview Cemetery sexton. 

George’s nephew Ted was a civic leader in Salida. He was instrumental in keeping a hospital open in Salida. He spearheaded the efforts to purchase the Denver & Rio Grande Hospital from the railroad. Ted was also one of the founders of FIBArk. He has the special distinction of being the Salida Chamber of Commerce’s first ‘Man of the Year.’
