HistoryMiss Anne Vermillion owned and operated the 1,000-acre ranch around 1900, living in a large log house which stood until 1970. It was torn down and rebuilt in the Boulder area, the logs having been numbered and re-assembled. The Colorado & Southern Railroad narrow gauge line ran through the ranch, having a "whistle-stop" on the property.
