And, the First Annual Pearl DeVere Day will be held on Saturday, July 27th in Cripple Creek. Pearl DeVere was the most important and influential Madam in U.S. history.  In the late 1890s, Pearl DeVere owned and operated the prestigious “Old Homestead House” that played host to some of the country’s wealthiest and most prominent businessmen. The brothel has survived for more than 120 years. The Old Homestead is the last original building left standing of the many infamous pleasure palaces on Cripple Creek’s Meyers’ Avenue. The day  will be filled with bed races, live music, beer garden, great food and craft and steam-punk vendors fill the day with Victorian fun.  Today, local ladies dress in costume and keep the story of the Old West alive through the stories they share about the lives of the girls who worked in the brothel and of the gold miners who made Cripple Creek famous. At the Carr Manor there is an Executive Suite named for her.  Come and stay at the Carr Manor and enjoy a day that takes you back to Victorian times.
