Cripple Creek in Teller County, Colorado — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Old Homestead Parlour House
Pearl DeVere, Hazel Vernon and Lola Livingston were among the mistresses who attended to the Parlour’s wealthy clients. Pearl’s tenure was short lived, as she died of a morphine overdose in 1897.
The Old Homestead remained a popular spot until 1916, when a variety of factors – declining mine production, Prohibition, and the Women's Christian Temperance Union – combined to close its doors.
