Early African American History in Colorado

Lincoln Hills - Wink's Lodge

1 / 12

In the early 1920s, Denver entrepreneur Obrey Wendell Hamlet, known as “Wink,” set out to build a resort in Lincoln Hills. He and first wife Naomi broke ground on a three-story, six-bedroom lodge in 1925 and finished it three years later. They officially named it Wink's Panorama, but everyone knew it as Wink's Lodge. Wink's Lodge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980
