Hotel de Paris Museum

The Hotel de Paris, in Georgetown, Colorado, was at the forefront of the late-19th-century silver mining boom, operating as a hotel, boarding house, residence, restaurant, and showroom for traveling salesmen from the 1870s to the 1930s. Louis Dupuy, a French immigrant, established the hotel in 1875 and enlarged it to its present size by 1893. The hotel was acquired by Sarah Burkholder in 1903; she and her daughter, Hazel McAdams, operated the site as a boarding house until 1939.
