When you are driving east on C- 470 and you cross over Santa Fe Dr., do you notice the large resident com-munity on the right called Wind Crest? Of course you do, because it's huge! Next time you go that way slow down and look near the high-way and you will see an old farm-house tucked in the trees beside the High Line Canal. It has a met-al fence around it now. It is waiting to see what its future will be.  is old house has two names, the" Plews House" and " Fly ' n B." Plews, because they built the house, and " Fly ' n B," because the Bowens owned the property and had a hangar and runways south of it. Why planes? Well, they also owned property in Strasburg, CO, and fl ying was the way Johnny Bo-wen chose to get back and forth in order to take care of both places. Caroline's Corner "  is old house" is waiting to see what unfolds. I spent a cou-ple of days inspecting it and it is a mess. A great deal of work will have to be done to make it use-ful to the community. Fortunately, Metro Districts, who are renown in Highlands Ranch for their ex-cellent care, have the " ball in their court" to decide what and how to deal with this relic of the past. It is hard to put a dollar value on memories of the past, but realities set in and future use isn't suffi cient to justify fi nancing fading memo-ries and achievements of those who have passed. Whether Metro can fi nancially satisfy relic- lovers and future real-ists will be interesting to observe. As President of the Highlands Ranch Historical Society I feel that we can support their decision whatever it may be. ? Caroline T. Smith, is the president of the Highlands Ranch Historical Society. Suggestions welcome for the " Corner". Email: foxycaroline@ hot-mail. com. ple Caroline Smithdeal
