A Little History from Lynda Holton Winchell:

"I also wanted to tell you a story the evening we were at the Edelweiss... The restaurant is a converted house that my grandfather and grandmother owned, and our mother and aunt grew up in. Mom was 15 when their father died of cancer. To make some extra money, Gramma rented out bedrooms (one of the first B&Bs).

A year or so later, my father, who was in the Army, was sent to help build Fort Carson (Camp Carson then). Dad rented one of the rooms at Gramma's house, where he met my mother. They were married two months before she turned 18. Then he was almost immediately shipped off to Oakland; she soon followed him and when the war was over, they moved to the Boise Valley to live on the farm where Dad was raised, and had three children.

Mom was homesick, so they decided to move back to Colorado Springs when I was barely 4, my brother was 2-1/2, my sister was 18 months. Dad built our house across Cheyenne Road/Creek from the football field of our old high school. That's where we were raised, and we all went to Cheyenne from K-12. My sister Tanya lives today "in the house that Dad built." ... "
