Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "In 1859, Luke Tierney's Pikes Peak Guide was published in Pacific City at the Herald Office, A. Thomson, printer. Perhaps the 'Herald' was successor to the 'Pacific City Enterprise' mentioned in this broadside. Pacific City has disappeared. The railroad, the bridge over the river, the drop in river traffic all caused its end. The 1845 'Iowa Gazetteer' only mentions the post office."
