The Life of Henry Hoder & the Wildhorn Dude Ranch
The Life & Times of Henry Hoder and the Wildhorn Dude Ranch
The Wildhorn Dude Ranch, located north of Florissant, Colorado, has a history as rich and colorful as the country surrounding it. The Ranch was purchased by the Hoder Family in the 1920's. The Wildhorn Dude Ranch has seen everything from cowboys when it was a working cattle ranch to moonshiners and mafia shootouts during the Prohibition Era to a variety of celebrities when it was a dude ranch. Steve Plutt, local historian, will present an interesting program on this piece of Teller County history at the Pikes Peak Historical Society’s April Chautauqua.

Steve Plutt has long lived in the shadow of Pikes Peak, having grown up in the Woodland Park area. Steve now resides near Lake George.
