More Information

The Grand Lake Area Historical Society was formed in 1973 to preserve and protect the only remaining log hotel built in Grand Lake prior to 1900, known today as the Kauffman House Museum. In 2009, the Historical Society purchased land and moved the Smith-Eslick Motor Court, which is the focus of the current project called Cottage Camp.
