The Historical Story of Lincoln Hills

In celebration of Black History month, we share the historical story of Lincoln Hills. According to Lincoln Hills Cares, the Lincoln Hills resort area saw several distinctive periods of growth and use. The first began in 1925 when Obrey Wendell “Winks” Hamlet and his wife Naomi Hamlet began their construction of Winks Lodge. Today, Winks Lodge in Colorado is one of the most significant buildings in the United States in both terms of historical and cultural value for African Americans who have made use of this facility since its founding in 1922 (www.lincolnhillscares./about-us).
