Today, the Homestead House is a museum that has been lovingly restored with velvet bedspreads and handmade furniture.
– from: Madam Pearl de Vere was only 36 years old when she was found dead from a morphine overdose in her bedroom in the bordello.
She was a highly successful “businesswoman” with (dyed) red hair but little is known of her past before she moved to Colorado from Evansville, Indiana in the 1880’s.
No photos of her exist, but her original grave marker is on display at the local museum: When the 1890’s gold rush hit the Cripple Creek region, Pearl astutely relocated her business there to take advantage of the new-found wealth in the mountain region.
In 1895, a huge fire raged through the town of Cripple Creek and Pearl’s first brothel business – located in a wood-frame house – was completely destroyed in the blaze.
