I have visited this site before and left a little of my family history since we lived there in Salida until the railroad closed the roundhouse and we moved to Denver.
My grandparents Henry and Dora Roll moved there from their homestead in the San Luis Valley. They owned the little house that sat on the v shaped property address 705 "B" St.
Our family lived at 837 "E" Street, We were all born in Salida and went to grade school, jr. high and my older brother graduated from high school before we moved. We continued going there until after my grandparents became to ill to live by themselves and we moved them to Denver to live with my parents.
I have a lot of good memories of groing up there and would like to have our stories printed in the history of Salida. I was so happy to find your site on the web.while doing some geneology and thougt if someone from the site would like to get in touch with me I would be glad to donate some of our history of when we lived there. You can e-mail me anytime.

I would like to contribute my families geneology to the records of Salida, Co. My grandparents and their children all moved from the homestead at Mirage, in the San Luis Vally in the early 1900's. My mother and father were married in Salida and had all 5 of us children were born there. My grandparents names Henry & Dora Roll they lived at 705 "B" street before moving to Denver because of health reasons living with their oldest daughter and her family. Her name was Hazel Ellsworth nee Roll. Hazel, Lee and children lived at 837 "E" street. All 5 of us were born, raised, went to school in Salida. My oldest brother graduated from Salida High. The reason we moved was because the Railroad close the roundhouse and we had to go where Dads work was.
I have a lot of good memiores of my life in Salida and will be glad to share them if you would want them.
Thank you for your site and am looking forward to reading more family historys of the families I grew up with.
