The first pick took us down to a little town south of Denver called Castle Rock. The name comes from a castle tower-shaped butte near the center of town.
During the late 1800's Castle Rock had a very active Rhyolite quarrying industry. Castle Rock was founded in 1847. When the train depot was constructed the town had a significant boom with both the Denver and Rio Grande Railway servicing the area.
We found some great pieces down in this small historic town. The Castle Rock Feed & Supply Co. is a great visit and FYI, they sell Chickens for $5.00 each.
Check out a few of our finds below.
Late 1800's Troemner country store scale with original paint.
Workbench from the 1890's. It has the original vise, screw driver and tool holders still installed. The patina and history this piece has in it is incredible.
Each of the items we find will appear in the Store section of "The Dock" with studio shot full color photos, dimensions, price and all known history. You'll also be able to see each of these pieces in person at the Studio Como showroom in Denver.
