Designed and built by Al Rigg, Jr., in 1923 for Denverite George W. Olinger, this rectangular log lodge has twin dormers on the second story and fronted by a large stone porch. The lodge was originally called Ho Cha Nee Stea, or Chief's Inn, and was the first stopping place for buses and cars bringing sightseers and prospective buyers to Indian Hills. In 1925, the first post office in Indian Hills opened in the structure with Frank Brinkhaus appointed postmaster.
