Wonderful opportunity to own a true piece of history in the Georgetown Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District. Could be a single family home or B&B. Many historic touches remain, and the views from Silver Plume are spectacular.

Silver Plume is another great little Colorado town filled with mining-boom era Victorian homes. It is a place that we have considered for relocation, but they do get a lot more snow there than we get in Canon City. That’s a huge deterrent for snow-phobic me.

The Windsor Hotel is currently for sale for $299,000.

And that old linoleum? This old house is essentially frozen in time!

It was built in the year 1884. Not as old as my house, but very close.

I wonder how many decades the wallpaper, carpet and furnishings have been there?

The old hotel currently has 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Imagine buying this home to use as a bed & breakfast! I hope it finds a worthy owner who realizes and embraces the depth of history here, rather than gutting the poor old gal.
