History

Built by carriage maker and real estate agent William Blatchford and his wife Clara in 1889. William Blatchford was born in 1848 in England and moved to Canada with his parents in 1849. William and his wife Clara immigrated to the United States in 1886 and homesteaded land in 1888. Blatchford developed and operated a sawmill and an irrigation system, later to be known as the Puett-Rentz Ditch.

He served as a county commissioner and was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives for 1907-1908. He was also very active in real estate and formed various partnerships with developers, including a well-known collaboration with the Bozman family during which they purchased two of the first automobiles in Montezuma County to transport real estate clients and to offer a taxi service. Blatchford and Bozman also had the postal delivery contract for the Cortez-Dolores route.

Newspaper advertisements indicated Blatchford and Bozman began marketing lots in the Coffins addition in about 1906, suggesting that Blatchford had moved into the addition himself at about that time. He died on December 29, 1911. His widow, Clara, remained in the area at least into the 1920s.
