Earl Sprague was a prominent local builder. He had a habit of occupying homes he built for a relatively short period of time, sometimes living in them less than a year.

Hugh Large came to Longmont in 1898 to each at Liberty Hall. Mr. Large married Lew Ellen Pennock in 1903 and they moved 413 Collyer Street the same year.

In 1922, after being a dark horse candidate, he was appointed Longmont postmaster and held that post until 1934. For many years, Mr. Large was involved in the real estate and insurance business and operated out of the Imperial Hotel building.
