Holzwarth Trout Lodge 1920-29
Besides the rustic cabins, this "dude ranch" had many outbuildings, including a taxidermy shop run by Johnny Sr. for a decade this was due to ranching as it originally existed-plain, primitive, and fun. In the 1920s the Holzwarths built the more modern Never Summer Ranch along the Colorado river and use these buildings for overflow.
Picture Caption: The Holzwarth family operated their Trout Lodge during the 1920s and the nearby Never Summer Ranch from 1929 into the early 1970s. The Holzwarth homestead and ranch represent an important chapter in Kawuneeche Valley history.
