Our home in Hoskins House still reflects some of Vermont native Edward Wallace Hoskins’ original vision. Hoskins and wife Maude Hurbert Bicknell, a school teacher, immigrated to Colorado in 1910 because of his failing health.
A painter and decorator by trade, and when physically able, Hoskins purchased a 50’ by 150’ lot in Dr. Walter Heath’s “Vermont” addition to Parker, in 1911 and had a nice two-story home built on the property that has since been expanded and turned into the cozy location of our spa.
Maude was elected Superintendent of Douglas County Schools in 1914. She initiated several innovative programs while in the position, such as the idea of “Centrals”, which were groupings of schools that would interact scholastically and in other activities. She also founded the first parent-teacher association in Parker.
