Code of the West

Photo of the Grant County CourthouseThe Code of the West was first chronicled by the famous western writer Zane Grey. The men and women who came to this part of the country during the westward expansion of the United States were bound by an unwritten code of conduct. The values of integrity and self-reliance guided their decisions, actions, and interactions. In keeping with that same spirit, we offer this information to help citizens of Grant County who wish to follow in the footsteps of those rugged individualists and live outside the metropolitan area. 

The general wording of this document is based on a work by John Clarke, Commissioner of Larimer County, Colorado.
