    Cadastral map of the Denver metropolitan area and surrounding counties showing land ownership.  Encompasses an area from east to west of 30 miles, and 32 miles from north to south, centered on the city of Denver.  The map includes the western 18 miles of Arapahoe County, Townships 1 to 5 South, Ranges 66 to 68 West; and the northern 24 miles of Jefferson County, as far west as Golden, including Townships 2 to 5 South, Range 69 and most of 70 West.  The southeastern corner of Boulder County is included, and very small portions of Weld and Douglas Counties as they bordered Arapahoe County on the north and south.  This map was made prior to 1901 when Adams County and the city and county of Denver were created from Arapahoe County.  (Original map held at Denver Public Library, Western History/Genealogy Dept.) 

    Index available (published by Foothills Genealogical Society).  The index lists owners' names (or in some cases, a lessee) and place names.
