About Old Homestead House

The Old Homestead was built in 1896 and was the most elegant brothel in Colorado's Cripple Creek District during its heyday. The house opened as a museum in 1958 and welcomes thousands of visitors from around the world each year. Built by the famous madam, Pearl DeVere, the Old Homestead offered the most beautiful women to rich and powerful men.  

 

Pearl built the house after the town was leveled by two fires, rebuilding with brick and modeling it after the elite brothels of Paris. The building has been holding strong for more than 120 years, and is the last original building left standing of the many infamous brothels on Cripple Creek's Meyers' Avenue. 

 

Today, the ladies of the house are local women who keep the story of the Old West alive through the stories they share about the lives of the girls who worked in the brothel and of the gold miners who made Cripple Creek famous.
