The Rocklands Hotel at Palmer Lake by D.W. Edwards

$8.00

For 31 years, Palmer Lake could claim one of the finest resort hotels in Colorado. This paper traces the history and ownership of the Rocklands Hotel from its intended origin in 1889 as a hotel-cum-sanatorium to its destruction by an acetylene gas explosion and fire in 1920. During those years, summer guests at the hotel could participate in a variety of leisure activities while on vacation at Palmer Lake, a town on the divide between Denver and Colorado Springs, which was served by the trains of four different railroads.
