So Kenosha House was where Dake was, wonder if the buildings formed part of the settlement.

All.

Some time ago, I posted on Pinecam: "Where was the Kenosha House?" And, yes, there were several differing opinions. And, that is OK. However, one reply led me to an article:

AN UPDATED ITINERARY OF THEODORE L. MEAD IN COLORADO IN 1871 by JOHN V. CALHOUN, Published August 2014

The article is based on the diary of Theodore Mead, an entomologist, included a photo of the Kenosha House and a few maps - one showing the location. In addition, brief narratives from Mr. Mead's diary make for interesting reading. I have put a few excerpts form the article on-line at:



At the bottom of the page is a link to the entire article. Since the article is in PDF format, it is searchable. Who knows what additional information can be gleaned from this article.

Enjoy,
Jim.

Since Kenosha House was in its original spot before the DSP&P built tracks, it may or may not have been in rail photographer's frame.

Here is another link to the modeler's discussion forum:

http://c-sng-discussion-forum.41377.n7. ... d6843.html

It includes a colorized view of Webster, and also the coke ovens fully built, and evidence of their crumbling while the C&S still ran as late as 1938 when the lat pic was taken.

The footing timber for the water tank is still at the mouth of Hall Valley as of 2017.

The depot was frame in construction, a bit larger than Bailey's depot, and burned completely in 1906. A smaller structure was built but Webster never was a destination stop afterwards like the time it was end-of-the-line during Kenosha Pass construction.
