Old Owl Inn Cottages & Cottontail Antiques: Where Ghost of Silver Miners Roam

Update: Not sure this establishment is open anymore, but it is still for sale!

During the 1930-50’s this established was bustling with business due to its popularity of its bar and gambling. Oh, let’s not forget the women folk who frequented this place with certain type of entertainment….cough….cough…lol! It has been restored and maintain by his it’s present owners and it is on the market for sale. The town boasted supposedly as many as 20-30 saloons due to all the silver mining boom and success. I think Red Mountain is thankful that these two structures have stood the test of time even though they had a very colorful past. If these walls could talk, then again maybe that wouldn’t be a good idea….LOL! Oops, sorry I couldn’t resist.

A plaque reads above the door:

The Owl Hotel
Where the action was!
Dedicated to Hattie, Little Eva and
The Girls of the Line.
While the men mined Silver.
They dug for Gold.
