Long Description:
"The Bradford Perley House was owned by Major Robert Boyles Bradford from 1859 until his death in 1876. Civil War recruiting was done at Bradford by Col. John Chivington in 1863. After a succession of owners, the house was sold to James Adams Perley in 1895. He and his wife Ida Tuttle raised their children and many of their grandchildren were raised there also while running a dairy farm until 1926. The property was then sold to John C. Shaffer for $1000.

John C. Shaffer and his wife Virginia Conser named the ranch for their two sons Kent & Carroll. Over the years and through many owners, the name has remained the same: Ken-Caryl Ranch. They built the present day Manor House as their home, completed in 1914. Mr. Shaffer, owner of the Rocky Mountain News, entertained such notables as: Pres. Wm. Howard Taft; Pres. Theodore Roosevelt; Will Rogers and others." Reference cited (visit link)
