“Cozy Point Ranch Sold”

The Aspen Times, Nov. 6, 1947

“Robert Wiese announced, this week, that he had sold his ranch at Cozy Point to Dr. and Mrs. R. M. Burlingame, of Denver. Mr. and Mrs. Wiese will move to the Aspen home of Mr. Wiese’s late foster mother, Mrs. Eugenia Cush, next week. Mr. and Mrs. Bill Skiff will move to Cozy Point next week, and will remain to manage it for Dr. and Mrs. Burlingame.

Dr. Burlingame, who was born in Aspen, has been known here for many years as the owner of the ranch at the junction of the Brush Creek road and the highway. The Burlingames plan to improve their summer home which stands on the Brush creek property so that it will be suitable as a permanent residence when Dr. Burlingame retires in a few years.

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Skiff, here, will be occupied by Mrs. J. Ferguson and her son, Donald.”
