Archaeology provides the “why” to the story that is so important to understanding, enriching, and unlocking the mysteries of the past. Whereas much is known about the railroad, there is still much to be learned from the abandoned can dumps, wrecks, and other historic debris that did not make it into newspaper articles, books, company records, or photographs. As for the Native American record on Rollins Pass, that simply cannot be known through any other means but archaeology.


At our book launch event held Saturday, May 12, 2018 for Rollins Pass, we announced the creation of The John Trezise Archive for Rollins Pass Imagery. This is the world’s largest collection of Rollins Pass imagery for non-commercial use that is crowd-sourced, completely searchable and available to the public, and secured from loss.


Preserve Rollins Pass facilitates straightforward access to archaeologists who have a vested interest in preserving the heritage of Rollins Pass. Should any historic or prehistoric item be found on the pass, please leave the item in place and fill out the form on this page or email [email protected], and your message will be forwarded to area experts, including Dr. Jason LaBelle.
