In 1926, Col. Arthur Hart recognized the need for additional housing near Fitzsimons Army Hospital and built Hart’s Park Cottage Camp (later known as the Dutch Mill Cottage Court) near the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Peoria Street. The 1930s saw an increase in traffic along US 40 and a boom in the local cottage camps on Colfax Avenue, so Col. Hart added a neon-lit windmill to draw tourists. This is a postcard of the Dutch Mill, which was used as the motel office, a grocery and a barber shop throughout the years.
