Pioneer Town Talks – Robert James – Builder of Cedaredge

September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As told by his grandson, Mike Mills, Robert James arrived in Cedaredge in 1901 at the age of 25, with a talent for carpentry. Bob James played a very important role in the development of Cedaredge.  Among James’ accomplishments were the three iconic stacked-wooden silos at Pioneer Town which he engineered and built in 1916 and 1917. Pictured above with the historic designation plaque issued by the Cedaredge Historic Preservation Board are: Selena Pederson, Dick Ducic, Will Snowden, Joan Crocker, Margaret Ellsworth, Lillian Minor and Ken Horton.
