More About Pine Valley by Hester-Jane Cogswell
 
 
 
Overview
Archaeologists and historians have long known that houses whisper about their past. There is one such house in Pine Valley, north of Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's now the permanent residence of the presiding Commandant of Cadets of the U.S. Air Force Academy. But this house, its history, inhabitants, neighbors, and the community involvement of those people give a unique and almost time-lapse view of the history of Colorado Springs and the U.S. Air Force Academy.

From frontier buffalo hunting and Indian raids in the Pikes Peak region to the U.S. Air Force Academy today, Pine Valley ties the events to the three successive owners of the home. Author Hester-Jane Cogswell narrates the story of the people and incidents that shaped Colorado Springs, including details about the early Jewel City of Pikes Peak, backgrounds of the Lennox and Otis families, and information about Pine Valley neighbors and families.

Through early letters, photos, diaries, and interviews conducted by Cogswell, Pine Valley presents a unique and personal history of the beautiful and fascinating Pikes Peak region.
