This place is just as the women left it to avoid a raid. Until very recently, prostitution was openly practiced with the complicit approval of the local sheriff and police. The madams were an important part of the community.

A test to behold. Complete time warp but like it was still working. Amazing indite to a service that provided a need for a working community. This place must be preserved. A highlight from our visit.

We did not visit this attraction. Wanted to, but I am disabled and couldn't get to everything. Wish we had.

The downstairs headquarters and gift shop are nothing special, but as soon as you head up the stairs to the bordello proper, you are treated to a whole world of customs and expectations that I suspect even people who frequent bordellos don't know about. The...More

I am fascinated by history so enjoyed our little tour. It's amazing to me that this bordello didn't close down until 1988???
