Prineville Bend Redmond Sunriver Brasada Ranch Caldera Springs Tetherow drawings The story of “Casa La Torre” To the best of our ability to Fibracate the following are the true historical facts relating to this unusual home It must have been about 1856 or 1857 when “Charlie” first slept under the stars right here in this exact spot. He was so taken by the beauty he encountered here that he decided to put an end to his days as a drifter and settle down By the time the first snow fell in that winter of ’57 Charlie had the roof on his log cabin… You can still see the major part of it on the left side of the walk as you pass through the court yard. Charlie spent that winter building the stone well house and digging the well. See it on the right of the court yard Yep that’s it the one where the plaster is falling off the upper walls the effects of a century of high desert weather. Well Charlie hit a gusher of a well some say it was an artesian it just shot up out of the ground with no pump or anything. He had so much water that he decided to build the water tower you saw as you came up to the house Yep the tall round thing straight ahead. Charlie knew he could sell water to the stage line and maybe the railroad if they ever came through. Charlie did pretty good selling water and prospecting for silver on the side. Then one day he just up and left town went north to Seattle folks said The story was that his wagon was so heavy the tracks could be seen for three or four summers. No one really knew what was in that wagon under those blankets but the old ledger from the general store shows that Charlie bought 586 heavy cloth bags in the months before he left We think we might have unearthed another strong clue when we dug out for our wine cellar. Take a look Thanks for visiting hope you have a real splendid day.
