The year 1900 held acres of promise for the two-decade-old town. “Fotografer” Frank Dean brought his studio from Gunnison and started taking pictures of businesses, families and scenery in the Grand Valley.

Also, with the encouragement of a local dentist, S.M. Bradbury, Dr. Elmer S. Riggs unearthed and named the first Brachiosaurus on the Redlands and the specimen was sent to the Columbian Field Museum in Chicago. The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge 575 is founded, with its first meetings held in the IOOF Lodge upstairs in the Bunnell Building at 448 Main St. The wildly popular “Brownie” camera was introduced by Kodak and sold for $1.
