In honor of the 100th anniversary of Lincoln Hills, Judge Gary Jackson will share a personal story of his family’s cabin that he still owns today. Come hear the first-hand account of someone who was there and is still there at Lincoln Hills.

Lincoln Hills was developed in 1922 as a recreation area for African-American families who were often not welcome in more popular vacation spots, and was only one of four such areas in the United States. Jackson and his family were very involved in the preservation and renovation of Lincoln Hills and instrumental in the refurbishing of Wink’s Lodge, a resort that was the centerpiece of the community.

In addition, Jackson has practiced law for 43 years and served as a county judge for 8 years before his retirement in 2020. He helped found Colorado’s oldest minority bar association, the Sam Cary Bar Association, in 1971 and is also a previous board member for History Colorado. He has received numerous awards, including Colorado Law’s Knous Award in 2010 and the Colorado Bar Association Award of Merit in 2011. On Feb 5, 2022 he was inducted into the Blacks in Colorado Hall of Fame.
