While I was in Denver a few weeks ago looking at homes for rent, I was taken aback by some of the older architecture I saw. The drawing of the homestead certainly depicts a beautiful choice in the home's placement. I never knew that Denver's history reached back into the early-mid 19th century. I'm happily pleased to see that the Barker home has information available online and at the library. Unfortunately, my search for lodging won't have the luxury of millions of acres of land to choose from! I'm just hoping to find a small piece of one acre I like!! How times change.
