Deep in the mountains of Colorado's front range, there lies a little sliver of Old France.
"Gentlemen," proclaimed its illustrious owner Louis Dupuy (born Adolphe Francois Gerard), "I love these mountains and I love America, but you will pardon me if I bring into this community a remembrance of my youth...this little souvenir of Alencon (France)."
For a quarter of the 19th Century, Dupuy's famed Hotel de Paris was just that: the sophistication of Normandy rising above the rough and tumble of one of the West's greatest mining rushes.
The Hotel de Paris Museum, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is owned and operated by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Colorado.
