Next door is the famous Tabor Opera House. Opening on November 20, 1879, the Tabor Opera House is one of only a few “Tabor” associated building still standing in Colorado. Tabor was a shopkeeper who grubstaked a couple of miners who struck it rich. He became wealthy overnight. The divorce of his first wife, Augusta, and marriage to the beautiful Baby Doe is the well-known story of the Tabor Triangle. The Opera House was said to be the finest theater between St. Louis and San Francisco when it was built. It is open for tours during the summer months.
