The Harvey Girls

The Harvey Girls are brought to you by the Ute Pass Historical Society.

In the 1870s, the food served to rail travelers was considered the worst in the country. Railroads were then operated on the theory that speed and not food was what counted. Restauranteur and businessman Fred Harvey saw an opportunity to bring civilized dining to the American West through the Santa Fe railway. His dream became a reality, with the help of famers’ daughters and other brave women who left the security of home and family to go west when the West was a male dream. The food and service made the Santa Fe popular, but it was the Harvey Girls who made it number one.

The Harvey Girls featuring the history of the Santa Fe Trail and Railway, Fred Harvey and his beloved waitresses will be on display in the Woodland Park Library through October.
