Occasional Paper No. 1 by Daniel W. Edwards.
13 pages, illustrations
During the era of the Rocky Mountain Chautauqua Assembly from 1887 to 1910, hundreds of people came to Glen Park, a community within Palmer Lake, to attend the classes and social activities of the Assembly. This paper gives a description and costs of the housing facilities then available in the Glen, including the unique “tent cottages” first introduced in 1896. There were no street addresses in the Glen, so many cottages were given picturesque names such as Columbine, Glen Bonnie, Hiawatha, Mount Hope, and Wander Inn.
