    HEALY HOUSE MUSEUM AND DEXTER...

    HEALY HOUSE MUSEUM AND DEXTER CABIN

    Dexter cabin’s rustic outside belies an inside of embossed wallpaper made to look like fashionable metal patterned walls and ceilings. Although plumbing is outdoors, the indoor bathroom’s tin tub is luxuriously surrounded by rich wood. Dexter imported walnut and oak flooring, alternated to make classy patterns of dark and light stripes.

    Since early Leadville was rough and ready, Dexter came up from his home in Denver without his wife and twin daughters. The Dexter Cabin was an exclusive poker club for wealthy gentlemen.

    The Victorian Healy house, originally two stories, was built in 1878 for August and Emma Meyer. August helped lay out Leadville in 1879, and, in partnership with Edwin Harrison of the St. Louis Smelting and Refining Company, opened the first ore sampler and smelting works in Leadville. Sold in 1881, the house eventually became the property of Daniel Healy, who leased it as a boardinghouse from 1897 to 1902. In 1898 a third story was added to accommodate more boarders, most of them schoolteachers.

    This photo of Leadville was taken from the road leading back into town from the Matchless Mine. It's rugged country.

    The Nursery in the Tabor House

    I don't know if Horace and Augusta actually had any children - all the references to Horace Tabor on the web refer to Horace and Baby Doe. Anyway, the Tabor house does have a child's room.
