Grand Lake Area Historical Society thanks donors

To the Editor:The Grand Lake Area Historical Society needed to raise $25,000 to move Grand Lake’s historic Smith-Eslick Cottage Court to its new setting, still on the old road to town, but diagonally across from where it originally sat.Eighty-two wonderful donors joined the Foot by Foot Campaign, purchasing 110 “feet” at $100 a foot to get us started on the 250 foot trip the Cottage Court needed to make to its new location. Additional donations enabled us to pay off about one-half the cost of the move.We’re still asking for donations, and would be grateful if you could help. The Society will next work to purchase the property adjacent to the Cottage Court’s present site so a substantial Grand Lake History Park can be developed as a much-needed additional open space for our town, and also work to reduce the debt on the lot where the Court now sits. Send your donation to GLAHS, POB 656, Grand Lake, 80447, noted “Cottage Court Fund”, and thank you.Just check out all these very many, very generous Foot by Foot donors. Our Grand Lake area community is the best.
