Colorado Springs Prospector (Newspaper) - September 1, 1981, Colorado Springs, Colorado New hotel announced plans not final for the Broadmoor the original Casino a Broadmoor hotel. By the summer of 1891, count Pourtales had constructed a georgian Casino on the rim of the Lake. The Structure was patterned after the Imperial Palace at Potsdam Germany. It was Well stocked with select european wines and liquors. Broadmoor Dairy co. To expand feb. 27, 1886 we have made mention of the recent purchases by the Broadmoor Dairy company of a portion of the lands and Dairy cows of Rose Brothers also the milk routes of Sinton Brothers and Isaac Ericson. It being very evident that the company intended carrying on business on a Large scale and learning that some extensive improvements were to be made a representative of the Gazette yesterday called on count Pourtales and w. J. Wilcox who in conjunction with j. M. Wilcox of Philadelphia compose the Broadmoor Dairy company. From them the reporter gained considerable information Regar-50 carpenters work on Casino apr. 19, 1891 at the Broadmoor there Are fifty carpenters at work on the Casino which is being built by Gillis Bros. Amp Walsh and or. W f. Douglas is superintending the construction. There have been very few changes in the plans As heretofore described in this paper. The Verandah on the Lake Side upstairs will be extended Clear out to the Waters Edge and the stairs instead of leading up in a separate lobby will go from the main Hall Down stairs into the dancing Hall in the Don be. The floor of this Hall will be of polished Maple and the stairs of Oak. A Little South of the Casino you will see men at work on a smaller foundation. This is for the dwelling House for the hungarian band and the other attaches of the Casino. It will be outwardly a Swiss chalet with the overhanging eaves and heavy stones on the roof characteristic of the dwelling of the picturesque Swiss mountaineers. A the Colorado Springs Gazette. Apr. 3, 1892 to the editor of the Gazette. I learn that on the strength of my Casino note of March 30, i am being cited As an Approver of social drinking and the sales of wines with meals. The inference is illogical. I disapprove of the use of alcoholics As a beverage and habitually urge the practice of total abstinence. But i recognize a considerable sphere of Christian Liberty where Many deny it and admit the possible moral lawfulness to others of some things which to me appear inexpedient. Ding the future plans of the company. In the first place taken in connection with the Broadmoor ranch and the property Purchase from Rose Bros., the company will have land to the extent of 2500 acres. All of this is the Best grazing land and can be thrown under ditch. Five Hundred acres Are already being irrigated. It is the intention of the company to seed the land with the Best grazing grass red top and Clover. There is now on the ranch stabling room for eighty cows and another stable with stalls for sixty is in process of construction and will be completed by March 1st also a Large Dairy House with cold cellars. For this Dairy House a too gallon churn and a danish Weston centrifugal milk and Cream separator have been purchased. As yet the company is not fairly in operation but improvement will be made from Day to Day and defects that May occur will be remedied. We have been requested to suggest that the practice now in Vogue in the East be adopted in Colorado Springs. That is. That the customers have a place where their milk can or Pitcher can be found by the Driver of the Wagon Early in the morning. In this Way much time can be saved and everyone can be supplied before breakfast time. The weekly Colorado Springs Gazette. Moderate drinking with meals with me comes under that head. I can for the time tolerate for this reason what by example and Precept i seek to change. We Are confronted by a condition not by a theory and practically it makes a vast difference in what connections quantities and manner intoxicated Are sold and used. I wish the Casino would if it shall be reopened discontinue All sales of liquor but i can scarcely expect it to conform to All the personal preferences of pastors demons. Prohibitionists or total abstainers especially when even among Christian people there is actual and scripturally natural differences of opinion. Hence i could approve and support the Casino As a whole even though in some respects i might question the highest Wisdom of its course. Life is full of such practical decisions. I am vastly More concerned about putting a Stop to the demonstrable evils of drink in our Community than i am in advocating any hard and fast theory or method with reference thereto. I advocate total abstinence and even vote the Proha Bation ticket but i ground my action on very different reasons from those often urged. I seek the practical before the Ideal and believe in temperate Temperance. Holding these views it is not strange that i had myself somewhat at variance with extremists of both sides. Richard Montague. The Colorado Springs Gazette. Jul. 15,1893 a tight rope Walker has been engaged to give exhibitions three Days next week at the Broadmoor Casino. His rope will be stretched across the Lake. The dates Are not yet arranged but the last exhibition will be on saturday evening when the acrobat will discharge fireworks from his airy Perch above the Lake. A the Colorado Springs Gazette. Apr. 22, 1891 count Pourtales will erect a cottage at Broadmoor to be used by the hungarian bands and other residents of the resort during the summer. The building will be the Swiss style architecture and will be a Beauty in every respect. The Green Mountain Falls Echo. Aug. 5, 1892 with the opening next season the Broadmoor will be one of the finest hotels in the state. Sometime past a Gazette representative became aware that the Broadmoor company was preparing to make some kind of a major development but until yesterday we were unable to gather the True facts and receive and gather the particulars of the parties interested to make Public. A number of businessmen of the City who have Large capital have purchased an interest in the company. And will proceed with great Energy into the Enterprise. The gentlemen Are messes. . Robinson f. Fisher j. Irvine Scott and . Sanford. They with count Pourtales and or. W. J. Wilcox will have control of the Stock of the company. The new company will proceed in the most vigorous manner to develop the magnificent Broadmoor property in the right direction. The first and most significant movement will be the erection of a magnificent hotel to be run in conjunction with existing Casino. Or. . Robinson is forming the plans for the hotel and will be ready for inspection in a very Short time. The building is to Cost $300,000 and is to be completed the first of May next. The building will be on the West Side of the Lake on a track Long ago reserved for a hotel site. Further particulars of the building Are withheld for the time being. The Broadmoor is today the most perfect resort in the West and it will now be put into comparisons in this country. Count Pourtales and or. Wilcox have begun the work and have accomplished wonders but they say that work has hardly begun and that they do not care to venture alone hence their reasons for bringing others into the company. These men who have joined them in the Effort Are Well known in the City and the adding of capital Back of them will guarantee that the Enterprise will be finished. They became interested in the Broadmoor property. Land Dairy Etc. It is proposed to make that hotel the finest in the state and the big hotel and Casino May be properly supplied with its magnificent lands and water May be easily made so. The company has an option on water rights in addition to that already owned but More details on that will be Given later. Announcement is undoubtedly one of the most important of the year for Colorado. It Means the building of another hotel in the territory of Colorado Springs and adds to the general Success of the pikes Peak Region. The Colorado Springs Gazette. Prospectors note this hotel was not built because count Pourtales had severe financial problems in the panic of 1893. Apr. 21, 1891 the Broadmoor company have contracted with a Denver firm for an electric Plant of 35 arc lights at a Cost of $10,000. This company is sparing no work or Money to make this pleasure resort Complete in every respect. The Green Mountain Falls problem aug. 17, 1893 m. John e. Bell Secretary of the International Trust company and or. Henry Hobson attorney for the company which on wednesday was appointed receiver for the Broadmoor company arrived in the City from Denver yesterday. Or. Bell has not yet had time to look around and decide what will be done yet. It is probable however that the Casino will not be closed until the end of the season especially As the order was make by judge rising of Denver on wednesday. A number of attachments by local creditors filed on wednesday were made before the order was issued and will stand but there is no desire to push the company and an officer said yesterday that the embarrassment is Only temporary. Our citizens certainly Hope so for the Broadmoor managements has always been very Liberal and has done a great Deal for this Vicinity. The Colorado Springs Gazette.
