Welcome to the Colorado U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association
"The Land of Adventure"

Kenneth Oltjenburns, Executive Director

I grew up on a wheat farm near Highway 6 in eastern Colorado. After attending Holyoke High School and getting a degree in Agricultural Engineering from Colorado State University, I worked in manufacturing design for a number of years. When my father retired in 1986, I returned to Holyoke to operate my family’s farm. This farm has been in the family since 1917 when my great grandfather purchased the land, including the farmstead where I grew up. Having an interest in the history of the area, I served as president of the Phillips County Historical Society for four years.

When Joe Hurley walked through Holyoke in 2004, I became interested in working to preserve our rich heritage along Route 6. Working with Mary Tomky and others, we established the Colorado U.S. Route 6 Heritage Corporation to set up a visitor center in Holyoke.

We work closely with the people in Arapahoe, Nebraska to link our efforts to promote heritage tourism. We look forward to placing Historic Route 6 signs and increasing awareness all across Colorado. Looking forward to having you join in this effort.
