Lincoln Hills, a black-owned resort community in the mountains west of Boulder, offered a much-needed haven for African Americans during the Jim Crow era. Amenities such as Wink's Tavern and Lodge, and the YWCA Camp Nizhoni Girl Scouts camp provided outdoor experiences and an escape from segregated Denver. The descendants of original landowners still own property in Lincoln Hills.
