The Life and Times of

Elizabeth Entriken


Joseph Barnett

Elizabeth Entriken travelled from Wisconsin to the Bailey area in 1864 with her sister and brother-in-law, Ann and William Bailey.  William Bailey and Reverend John Dyer, Elizabeth's and Ann's brother, built the cabin and established Bailey's Ranch.  

Elizabeth lived in the cabin from 1864 until shortly before her death in 1922. The Entriken Cabin is the only remaining structure from the original town of Bailey.  It was moved to its present location the McGraw Memorial Park in 1973.

Joseph Barnett was the first school teacher of Platte Canon who taught the three Rís to the children of the first settlers in a little school house that he built long before the coming of the railroad in the 1878. Joseph lived in a log cabin that remains today in its original location in Bailey.
