In 1882 P.H. Smith settled in Grand Lake. He built a hotel and also operated a sawmill, carpentry shop, and a large resort. Around 1915, along with the Alfred Eslick family, he built this Motor Court, designed to accommodate both visitors and their cars as automobile tourism changed the American West.
Take a look to see how these early entrepreneurs creatively adapted to the newly emerging auto tourism market with the unique architectural style seen here. Built when Rocky Mountain National park opened, it is thought to be the oldest remaining motor court in the U.S.
