Georgia's Cowboy Poet
The Hornbek Homestead - Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument
By early Spring, 1878, Adeline Hornbek moved to Colorado Springs
and then eventually built her ranch on 160 acres in Florissant. Her ranch consisted of a main house, bunkhouse that served has a home for farm hands that help harvest her 3-acre garden full of potatoes and fruit and many other kinds of vegetables, a root cellar, barn, and carriage shed. Quite an accomplishment for a Pioneer Woman - as she also had 4 children, served on the school board and worked in the general store.

Since the late 1700's Cowboys have been writing and reciting poetry around the campfire. Today, they continue at Cowboy Gatherings, entertaining across our great nation.
