LULA—A Portrait in Pictures and Prose of a Keystone, Colorado Family
Story of the Myers family, which played a prominent role in the life of Summit County for many years. Col. James H. Myers, Sr., the first to arrive, invested in mines and encouraged many to support his mining adventures. His son, “Dimp,” also a leader in mining enterprises, married Lula Orsburn, a schoolmarm who taught in Frisco. They lived in Keystone on a 160-acre homestead now part of Keystone Resort. Their 1885 house stands behind the Summit Historical Society’s Schoolhouse Museum in Dillon.
