Pioneer Life at Big Bend on The Dolores River in 1882

Part 2: Continued from the August issue
“Big Bend” was located on the Dolores River about 1887. The log cabin on the left was the school house. Harris Brothers Mercantile was located to the right of the school house and has the big wooden sign on the front of the store building. Other businesses not identified. The last building on the right has a sign that said “Lodging” and “Restaurant.” This may have been the boarding house owned by Mr. and Mrs. S. O. Morton.
