A bit of history of Dolores County, Colorado

Stacks Image 3
Cars were valuable in 1932. Clifford Springmeyer traded a 1929 Chevy for 320 acres on Squaw Point that year and moved into a half dugout.
He and his wife Bertha move from Oklahoma, bringing their three youngest children, one of whom was Wilma Randolph. Three children were already grown.
Clifford moved the family to Tacoma, WA in 1942 to work in the ship yards during the war years. In 1945 he moved back and Wilma, 13 years old then, remembered helping build this house. In the 1950’s the family moved to Arizona.
