I really like the story of how Dr. Bowie bought her land. She knew that

it could be reclaimed, but her brother didn't believe it and told her

she was nuts. She had the "last laugh", as it explains in the visitor

center. I think there's another story behind her debts, which were all

paid off with special land grants to the city for buildings. I'll bet

she was a fun person to know.
