Harry's Heaven LbNA # 8430
|Placed Date||May 29 2004|
Harry's Heaven has been replaced but has already gone missing after just one finder.
The cabin is believed to have been built by John Tallman who sold this 160 acre site to William Newlin in 1878.
The log building was encased in a frame structure by William Newlin’s grandson, Harry. Local legend has it that Harry’s new bride refused to live in the cabin until Harry improved it.
The cabin is now on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places. It was deeded to the Parker Area Historical Society in 1996.
From the intersection of Parker’s Main Street and Parker Road (Colorado 83), drive east on Mainstreet for 2.15 miles to Canterberry Parkway. Turn right (south) for .4 miles to Canterberry Trail (which is right before the recreation center). Turn left and continue for .4 miles to Callaway Road.. Left for .1 miles. Park on the curb in front of the cabin.
Wander around the site to stand at the back door facing the fence. Sit on the steps. The box is on your left tucked carefully in the corner where the steps meet the wall.
Please be discreet, there are houses nearby!
A handcarved stamp and handmade journal.
We would love to know if it is safe and sound!
