Sam Arnold, R.I.P.

Posted by Richard on June 9, 2006

I was saddened to hear that Sam Arnold died Thursday. He was the founder and co-owner (with his daughter Holly) of The Fort Restaurant in nearby Morrison, CO. The Fort is an authentic recreation of Bent’s Fort, a trading post from the 1830s, and a wonderful dining experience in a stunning setting.

The Fort specializes in "food and drink of the Early West," and I’ve enjoyed some truly wonderful meals there. On a couple of holiday occasions, we had dinner with Sam and Holly — well, not with them, exactly; we were seated at a table adjacent to the Arnold party’s. They were friendly, cheerful, and thoroughly nice people.

My sympathies to the family and friends of Sam and to the staff at The Fort.
