The Harvey Girls: Women Who Opened the West

The Harvey Girls Women Who Opened The West

Beginning in the 1880s "Harvey Girls" went west to work in Fred Harvey's restaurants along the Santa Fe Railway.

At a time when there were few ladies west of Dodge City and no women west of Albuquerque, they came as waitresses, but many stayed and settled, helping to found the struggling cattle and mining towns that dotted the region.
