Notes
Survey number HABS CO-146
Building/structure dates: 1880 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1888 subsequent work
Significance: Both the Town Hall and Jail are well preserved examples of governmental buildings erected in Colorado mountain mining camps during the 1880's. The buildings and their furnishings vividly recall their civic and penal functions. Architecturally, the hall with its belfry clearly denotes its vote as center of governmental authority and civic identity, recalling similar buildings in other camps, now vanished or replaced.
