Going Home: Louisville Residents Who Returned to the Old Country

With the westward expansion of the late 1800s and early 1900s, many people moving to Colorado were separated by long distances from close family members.

How the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic Changed Louisville Families Forever

By many accounts, the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 resulted in the deaths of between 20 and 50 million people worldwide.

Influenza Pandemic

The influenza virus that killed so many in 1918 and 1919, unlike other strains, particularly affected young people. Consistent with this characteristic of the strain, young people in the Louisville area were disproportionately struck down as a result of the influenza virus arriving in the area in October 1918.
