  1. The yellow hotel in Lusk, Wyoming. Was actually started in the early 20th century, not the late 19th century. And it was the oldest active brothel in the state of Wyoming until 1989, when the orginal owner and Madame died. When she died she was also one of the richest women in the state.

    It is unfortunate that the building was destroyed. There was a book written about the kindly madame that owned it. The book was fascinating, especially enjoyed reading about her many good deeds. I walked through the empty structure and took many photos of the hotel in the summer of 2010. I did not experience any strange sensations, but merely appreciated its uniquely interesting role in frontier history. I recall that her name may have been Dell Burke.
