This is an actual 1890's brothel. No working girls but the tour guide did a great job telling their story. Not very costly.

You pay a modest price of under $10 to help preserve this piece of intriguing history. Every town has a story to tell and the story of Pearl and her girls in this parlor seems to be a big part of this town. The ladies...More

Whooda' thunk a tour of an old brothel could be such fun? Despite the unsavory nature of the place's reason for being, the tour is lighthearted and full of relevant historical detail.

Best bet - call the Heritage Center: 719 689-3315. My guess is that it's probably not open in April (too much snow and no tourists). But still best to check with the folks that know for sure.

I don't remember exactly how much tickets were. Less than $10 a person I'm sure. Your took about 30-45 mins. It's definitely worth it. Lots of old history in that place.
