Delaware Hotel, Leadville CO

I thought this was one of the more grand building in town.  The Delaware Hotel was built by local businessmen William, George and John Callaway in 1886.  It was designed to house stores on the sidewalk level and side with handsomely furnished rooms, office and bedrooms in the upper levels.  Among the fine features were steam heat, hot and cold running water, gas lights, baths and closets.  King was the architect of this building (haven't we heard his name several times before?)!
