What’s in a Name?

John Rolfe Burroughs, a civilian war hero who was captured by the Japanese in WWII, was also a prominent writer and historian who called Steamboat Springs home. He chose to produce most of his writings in what he called the "Dog House". This hand-built, 10-by-24-foot log cabin is where he wrote "I Never Look Back", the story of legendary ski-racer and hometown-hero Buddy Werner, among other award-winning books. To this day, Burroughs' beloved cabin the Dog House, remains on the Routt County Register of Historic Places, and his stories of the West remain a strong part of the heritage of Steamboat Springs.
