Point of Interest Details

Sarah Coberly arrived in Colorado in 1859 and was the first white woman pioneer in this region. She first lived near Dakan, but eventually moved to Huntsville where she operated a hotel called the Coberly Halfway House - because it was halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs.

The location of the hotel is in question, but there is an old photograph showing a two story building with at least three wings in this approximate area.

The Coberly Halfway House was a very popular stopping place for visitors. It had a great location and several respectable, single ladies working at it. Among them were Hersa Coberly, Sarah's daughter, who married Silas Soule (a hero from Sand Creek) and Lizzie Fields, an indentured servant who married John Kinner.
