Were there other owners besides the Boyce's and the Davis'? I believe my grandmother used to work summers at the Navajo Lodge in the late 50's thru the 60's... and at that time I think a family with the last name of Summer's (spelling) either managed or owned the Lodge... I spent many summers visiting with her and staying in the lodge...

I believe the last owners of the old lodge were the Carl DeBords. I have no idea when they purchased it but they both died in the late 1960s (l967?), and that is apparently when the lodge fell into disrepair before being torn down to build the condos that now occupy that spot (behind Starbuck's).

My Dad, Carl De Bord owned it in the 50's and I spent summers there with him. I remember a George Charis? and a few other young kids working there and I would love to find George now, as he was like a brother to me.
