    where I am going when the crap hits the fan

    Would you want to live in a place where people died from one of the worst epidemics in history? Now housing apartments this is the largest Cobblestone buidling in the United States, requiring 3300 tons of cobblestones to be brought up from Clear Creek by 6600 wagonloads. Built in 1913 the Colorado National Guard Armory in Golden originally had dormitories, a mess hall, weapons storage, and on the third floor a map room. In 1918 the Red Cross converted the armory into an emergency hospital for those who suffered from the great flu epidemic that took place during the First World War. This flu epidemic killed more worldwide than war causilities of the First World War. In the 1990's this beautiful building on the slopes to the south of downtown were converted to apartments.

    less than 30 minutes from downtown Denver. Take I-70 west to exit 256 (Buffalo Bill Grave), Or take 6th Avenue West to Golden and turn left onto the Lariat Trail (19th Street). Follow the scenic winding road to the top of the mountain.

    Born in 1846, William F. Cody herded cattle, worked on a wagon train, mined for gold, rode in the Pony Express, and scouted for the Army. His skill as a buffalo hunter gained him the nickname "Buffalo Bill."

    Grave of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. By his request, Buffalo Bill was buried on Lookout Mountain in 1917
