After growing up and living under slavery, Clara Brown was freed in 1859 when her owner, George Brown, died in Kentucky. After coming to Colorado, which was not even a state yet, she amassed a savings of $10,000 through her own business as well as investments in real estate and mining. Often referred to as 'Aunt' Clara Brown, she gained a reputation of kindness as she searched endlessly for her daughter.
