Pine Valley Ranch

Address: Off Cty. Rd. 126, between Pine Junction & Pine

The property was bought in 1928 by the Baehr family of Chicago and a large castle-like structure was built for summer living, called "Baehr Den".This was sold in 1960 after the death of the owners, to a group of professional men from Denver. It was used as a retreat and for recreational purposes and sold again in the late 1960s when a large dining room was opened to the public and a conference room modernized . It was renamed Pine Valley Ranch; closed in the late 1970s and sold to the Jefferson County Open Space. It is closed to the public at the present time.
