|This shed is on my property in Rocky Ford and came
with this story:
"Elijah S. Bell - House. Mr. Bell was main stock-holder of First National Bank of Trinidad. He financed almost all the Basque French sheep-men of the south country. This house set on 2 lots in Timpas , Colorado. It was purchased in 1940's by Pearl and Bertha De Frese who owned the 10 acres east of the cemetery. They had the Bell House moved to Rocky Ford to be used for a horse-barn. This project was never completed. "
"Mr. Bell always rode the passenger trains from Trinidad to Timpas, staying in Timpas sometimes a week transacting business with sheep-men. Mr. Bell also had a storage wool warehouse in Timpas that burned in 1926 with Timpas Mercantile, lumber sheds, burning half block. This was the largest fire of Timpas history."
