120 Years: 1992

The year 1992 sees the first Country Jam in Mack. Alabama headlines and the music festival soon outgrows the original site. Another cowboy event happens when Grand Junction holds its first major cowboy poetry gathering.

Mesa State College’s Unified Technical Education Campus opens and is named for Tilman “Tillie” Bishop, a longtime educator, public servant and former state legislator. The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office gets a new home on Rice Street with a new jail next door.

Colorado voters pass the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights amendment to limit government spending and Gov. Roy Romer dedicates the $490 million Glenwood Canyon Highway Project.
