Took a nice drive down Highway 126 recently, through Buffalo Creek and saw a big PRICE REDUCED - for sale sign on the historic Blue Jay Inn in Buffalo Creek. Does anyone, other than me contacting the realtor, know why the work stopped on the Blue Jay Inn several years back? Seems like it has been for sale for a long time. The public records show last sold in 2008 and has been for sale for some time now.

Did they run out of money? Did they run into structural issues? Did the flash flood of 1996 cause too much damage to make it not too feasible to reconstruct once it was purchased in 2008? I did some searching and the public records don't seem to show who really owns it now. Found some articles and threads on here and elsewhere about it hoping to be opened in 2008 by some fine folks from Arizona.

It would be great to see it restored and opened back up. That place could have a lot of potential. It has such an amazing history, dating back to 1890 - and if those walls could talk!

Any of you folks in the know, know?

Thanks in advance - Curious in Conifer.

The gentleman who was working on it, the owner I think, got sick. I spoke to him a couple years ago in Deckers.
