Here is an interesting comparison of Kenosha Pass - 1935-2017. I have been trying to locate the exact location of the "Kenosha House" to no avail. If someone knows it exact location, or better yet, have early photos, I would love to hear from you.

Was it related to the C&S railroad? You might be able to get some info or maps out of the Colorado Railroad Museum down in Golden.

I also found this on a model railroading discussion site:

Kenosha House was established by Charles Hepburn as a stage stop in 1861, pre-dating the railroad. Pages 10 & 11 of this publication ( http://bit.ly/2gZ1Kf5 ) provide excellent detail, including photos. I heard that the Lampings moved the building on a flat-bed truck down to Grant, and that it was remodeled to the Platte River Inn.
