Donate to Historical Projects

Cottage Camp – Grand Lake, CO: The Grand Lake Area Historical Society is spearheading the Cottage Camp project. The Smith-Eslick family built what they called the Cottage Court, later referred to as Eslick’s Cottage Camp and Eslick’s Cabins. This was an overnight accommodation for automobile travelers, i.e. an early “motel” in today’s terms. This also explains the four cabins separated by open “car ports,” all joined by a common roof. History experts from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Colorado Historical Society believe that the Cottage Court is probably the oldest original motel structure in the United States.
