Bibliography: The Weekly Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colorado) March 1, 1898 page 3 ‘Considering Plans’

Remarks: By 1898, Henry left Chicago and resumed his partnership with Frank Weston in Colorado Springs, Colorado. No records could be located regarding any work done by the firm during this time.

Until a small mention in the Colorado newspaper, The Weekly Gazette. The newspaper writes that the architectual firms of Pease & Dawson, Barber & Hasting, Douglas & Hetterington, and Weston & Trost are presenting drawings and plans for the new county hospital. The county hospital was to be built on the east side of Colorado Springs, on the present site of the old jail. The hospital was to be located inside the city limits and near the center of the city.

There was a large amount of opposition from the citizens of Colorado Springs in regards to the location of the hospital. Citizens circulated a petition to stop the building of the hospital. In October of 1898, the plans for a new county hospital were abandoned.
