A bit of history of Dolores County, Colorado
Dates and concrete facts about this log home as as scare as the shingles on its roof. It was built by Tom Francis, but no one remembers when he built it, or even when he died.
Tom was a bachelor who said he intended to marry until the eleventh hour, but never got around to it. Babe Young, daughter of Hank Snyder, who grew up on a ranch nearby, said she remembers Tom as part of the family.
The old roof was holding little snow in the winter of 1996-97
