Attractions

Associated with the exploration and settlement of the Cedaredge area, the property includes a small pioneer log cabin which served as the first residence in the community. Built in 1891, the Lovett House is the longest continually occupied residence in Cedaredge and also served as the location of the community's first post office.

Based on a Sears Catalog plan for a wood frame residence, the 1911 two-story Stolte House is a good local example of ornamental concrete block construction. The blocks were molded and laid by Cedaredge mason Virgil Bouldin, while interior materials were ordered from Sears.

Travel back in time, with a visit to Pioneer Town in quaint Cedaredge, Colorado. As you walk along the wooden sidewalks of Pioneer Town's Main Street, you can visit the Coalby General Store, the print shop, the saloon, the States mining museum, the Girling Mercantile, the bank, the marshal's office, the jail house, the Wells Fargo office, and the barber shop which also doubled as a dental office.

Constructed in 1916 and 1917, the three stacked lumber silos were built by Robert James, an early settler in the Surface Creek Valley. James was recognized locally for his carpentry skills and built the silos for the Stockham Brothers, owners and operators of the Bar I Ranch.
