Notes:
"This property was a homestead in 1858, 20 years before the town of Colorado Springs was incorporated. Originally a truck Farm growing asparagus and rhubarb , the 1930's saw Mr. Eugene Lilly develop trout ponds which supplied the 21 Club in New York City. An on site nursery supplied trees and shrubs to neighboring properties, while "les mauvaises herbes" were kept away with the help of "weeder" geese, imported from France to eat the undesirable vegetation."
