Instead of dying of tuberculosis as his doctor predicted, Freelan Stanley lived to be ninetyone and become a community patriarch responsible for developing the Estes Park power company, waterworks, and sewer system. An inventive and promotion-minded genius, Stanley helped put Estes Park on the map as a tourist town. His home, in a high-style Georgian Revival mode, was the prototype for the Stanley Hotel.
