Silver Dollar Saloon, Leadville, Colorado by 


2272 viewings on 12 June, 2014.

The town of Leadville is an old mining town in Colorado. The people there have obviously treasured some of the historical buildings, the saloon being one of them. No doubt there are many interesting tales of events which took place in this hotel.

The Silver Dollar Saloon opened as The Board of Trade Saloon in 1880 and Doc Holliday shot (but didn’t kill) his last man in Leadville.

The 70 square blocks of Leadville is designated “A National Historic Landmark District”.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.
