Historic Hotel

by written on January 10, 2010

In 1886, William, George and John Callaway, who had established business on Harrison Avenue in Leadville, built the Delaware Hotel at an incredible cost of $60,000. The first story of the hotel was designed to be sidewalk stores. The second and third floor had fifty hotel rooms. The building including the newest in comforts, including steam heat, hot and cold water, gas lights and 6 bathrooms.

The brothers named the hotel after their home state, Delaware. It was designed by architect George Kind, who also designed the Tabor Grand Hotel across the street. The plush design and amenities of this antique hotel reflect the grandeur of the gold and silver booms in Leadville.

A few years after being built, the entire first floor was a dry goods store. Today, visitors can stills tay in this historic Rocky Mountain hotel, but now the first floor boasts two restaurants.

We didn't stay here, but did explore the stores and lobby...
