About the Film

Crowning the summit of Brown’s Bluff in the heart of Denver, the Colorado Capitol Building is among the great architectural treasures of the American West. As a living historic museum and active seat of government, the Capitol provides a telling reflection of the people and politics that shaped Colorado amid interest as diverse as its landscape. That story is told in Havey Productions “Centennial Statehouse: Colorado’s Greatest Treasure”.

Havey Productions is a commercial photography and film production company doing business in Denver since 1979. Copies of the film can be purchased on the Havey Productions website, www.haveypro.com.

4 Bar 4 Ranch

Homesteaded in 1895 by Dick McQueary to provide a stop for the Georgetown Stage Line, the 320-acre 4 Bar 4 Ranch has strong ties to Grand County and Colorado's heritage. The Georgetown Stage Line traveled on the road through the 4 Bar 4 Ranch from Idaho Springs to Hot Sulphur Springs over Berthoud Pass. In 1895 a roadhouse and stage stop were constructed on the ranch. The hotel and barn were constructed using trees from the Ranch property, and the hotel remained open for travelers coming over Berthoud Pass by horseback and wagon until 1913. With the coming of the automobile, the roadway over Berthoud Pass and through the 4 Bar 4 Ranch was considered an integral part of the Trans-Continental “Midland Trail” highway. Following the closing of the stage line, the ranch continued to host travelers until 1912 or 1913 when it was purchased and converted into a Ford Motor Company . Ford vehicles were sold here until 1917, when Harry Larkin purchased the ranch site. Today emergency efforts are underway to ensure it survives through the winter. Donations are in need.
