Established in 1884, the Iliff and Platte Valley Ditch Company (IPV) irrigated land in Logan County, Colorado. Typical of many irrigation companies in Colorado and the West, a group of investors pooled their resources to form IPV and raised revenue by selling shares of stock to irrigators. The collection contains the financial and business records of the company, including several ledger books with articles of incorporation, meeting minutes, stockholder information, cancelled stock certificates, cancelled checks and payment information, tax and insurance records. For more information see the finding aid.

This digital collection, with materials dated 1884 to 1937, includes articles of incorporation and other founding documents, cancelled stock certificates, meeting minutes, and correspondence.
