In the late 00s, the historic building

When I moved to Colorado in 1997, I made my first friends at
the coffee shop on the bottom floor in the far right shop in the photo. They were
the Ward Family who ran Stanley Arbuckle's Cafe.
Standing in front of the entrance, there's a bridge that goes over
Fountain Creek. Also, there was a restaurant called
the Blue Note that had a wonderful creekside outdoor patio. Today, Adam's Mountain Cafe occupies that space and is very popular.
