Cassells Among the Pines: A Once Renowned but Now Forgotten Grand Resort in the Colorado Rockies
presented by Larry Bell

Larry is an amateur genealogist, historian and researcher. He is fiercely proud of being a fourth-generation native of Colorado and passionate about preserving it’s history.

For over fifty years, from 1878 until 1930, Cassells flourished as “the oldest and grandest of the Platte Canyon resorts”. This presentation details it’s origins as a homestead, growth, glory days, survival after a devastating fire, eventual decline and closure. It will also briefly discuss how it then became the well-known institution that has continuously occupied the site in the eighty-six years since Cassells closed.

The location that was Cassells from 1872 - 1929 has been Camp Santa Maria since 1930.
