School District #16 – Upper Hope Valley




Lucy Gammell, grandmother of Lucy Rawlings Tootell,   started The Jolly Miller Tea Room, which was located in Hope Valley.  It was first located  in a granary (presently the site of the Hope Valley- Wyoming Fire Department Station #1) in Depot Square and later moved across the street, where the photo was taken.  This is presently the site of the Spring Street Market and located at the intersection of Spring Street and Main Street.

The tea room would have been located where the building is on the left side of the street:


We are fortunate to have a copy of a newsletter written by Hope Andrews of Hope Valley describing the origins of the tea room and what it was like working there.


Across the street from the Jolly Miller Tea Room, and north of, and on the same side of the street as the Hope Valley Fire Station #1, is the Hack & Livery.   This is owned and operated by Richmond residents, Doug and Peggy Yattaw.  The Yattaws, maintain a general store atmosphere, with a unique variety of merchandise including many collectibles.
