Bradford Toll Road


Address: Indian Hills, 80454

Bradford Toll Road was named for Robert Boyles Bradford, who was born in Davison County, Tennessee in 1813. He joined with Russell, Majors, and Waddell to form an overland transportation company. Bradford went on to Denver to set up a store for the supplies which Russell, Majors, and Waddell would transport by stage in 1859. The Bradford Toll Road started at the Ken-Caryl North Ranch and followed South Turkey Creek to Bradford Junction, where it joined two other roads from Golden to South Park and Fairplay. The road later went on to Breckenridge.
