75: The enactment of prohibition in Colorado in 1916 forced John Holzwarth Sr., then a Denver saloonkeeper, to start over as a subsistence rancher. His new homestead, 8 miles north of Grand Lake, was established in 1917, The ranch never materialized, but with the completion of the Fall River Road over the Continental Divide in 1920, John joined other valley residents in serving the increasing numbers of mountain travelers. Thus the Holzwarth's Trout Lodge was born.
