Lured by the promise of land and opportunity, miners, cowhands, laborers, settlers and fortune-seekers poured into Colorado during the mid- to late nineteenth century and into the twentieth. To accommodate the population boom, industrious Coloradoans built scores of hotels—some elaborate, some modest, all a touchstone to this critical era in Centennial State history. Join Alexandra Walker Clark on this tour through Colorado’s historic hotels. Discover how the Oxford and Brown Palace Hotels have managed to maintain their elegance, while others such as the Timberline Hotel of Holy Cross City and the Ramona of Cascade have vanished. With timeless recipes from hotel kitchens, learn how hotels have adapted to eras like the Native American decampment and Prohibition.
