Prominent on East Main St, this historic brothel is a favorite spot for tourist, photographers and history buffs. One of Colorado's most famous Madams Elizabeth Spurgen, known as “Cock-eyed Liz” had this bordello constructed in 1876 during the gold and silver mining era. The building is Late Federal architecture with Italianate window treatments and Eastlake porch design. Restored in 2015, this building is recognized as a significant contribution to Colorado's old west heritage. Preserving the character and charm of the property, the building functions as 1,066 sqft. of office space and 686 sqft. of living space. Zoning allows the property to be business or both (mixed use). Incorporating Green Features, the restoration has lowered the utility bills. Located in the hub of Main Street's restaurants & shops, this property includes a 25ft by 125ft buildable lot.
