The Brown Palace and the building that was once Duffey's Tavern. Didn't those tunnels from the Brown lead to brothels and speakeasys and such?

The brown palace has tunnels that go across the street. I forget the name of it but it was a ***** house or something like that where they could go into the hotel without notice

Default Answer to which buildings have tunnels.

Great guesses and The Navarre House is connected via tunnels to the Brown Palace, as is the State Capitol. The tunnels were originally planned to haul coal and wood to heat the capitol and for politicians to stay at the Brown during snow storms. The brothel (Navarre) coincidently had a tunnel also for a different type of business for the politicians. Also believed to be connected was Trinity Church, the Masonic Temple and later even the City and County building. These were more as escape routes from the Capitol. The tunnels are part of Denver's history and more recently have been discussed for their hauntings.

Lake Junior High School also has tunnels as bunkers and escape routes beneth it. These are the only tunnels I have actually seen from all of these buildings.

Colorado State Capitol



Denver City and County Building



Trinity Church



Scottish Rite Masonic Temple



Brown Palace





The Navarre House



Lake Junior High School at Sloan's Lake

Is it that she advocated for women getting the vote? Or how about that she was instrumental in raising funds for the Catholic church at 14th and Logan (now a basilica)?

Wow! I just cheated and looked her up in Wikipedia. She did an awful lot of good things! It's worth checking out. Among other things, she was awarded the French Legion of Honor for her relief work in France.
