Maria Dolores (Lola) Urquides was born to Jesus and Adelaida Urquides on October 8, 1882.
She married Daniel H. Binnard in 1902, but he died suddenly in 1915 and Lola moved back to 115 Main Street to care for her aging father until his death in 1928.

Following her father's request, she continued to manage and maintain Urquides Village eventually transforming it from workers' quarters to retiree cottages.
In 1947 the Idaho Statesman characterized Urquides Village as a "famous campsite" that now provided a "bachelor's haven" of bungalows for a tight community of retirement.

Until the day of her death, September 7, 1965, Lola promoted the village as a tourist attraction. She gave historical tours, recounted personal recollections and stirring accounts of her father's adventures as a packer, miner and participant in the Indian Wars.
