    Lincoln Hills was divided into roughly 1,700 narrow lots, which were advertised to blacks across the country. By 1928, about 470 lots had been sold. The onset of the Great Depression ended many dreams and meant that only a few dozen private cabins were actually constructed.

    One key to the success of Lincoln Hills was its easy accessibility. The Denver & Salt Lake Railway stopped twice near the resort, making it possible to arrive in less than an hour from Denver or stop for a few days during a cross-country trip.
