The home of silver king Horace Tabor and his first wife, Augusta, was built around 1877 and moved from its original site on Harrison Ave. to its present location to make room for the Tabor Opera House. The couple lived in this home until 1881, when Horace left Augusta for his mistress, Baby Doe.
Augusta, Leadville’s “First Lady,” had great courage, super-human endurance and extraordinary business acumen. A dozen years after the sensational divorce that broke her heart, she died a millionaire. In that same year, Horace Tabor went bankrupt.
Opening for the season on Friday, May 27th. Tours offered daily from 10am to 4pm.
