In 1859 thousands of gold seekers flocked to Colorado, taking part in one of the greatest gold rushes in North American history.

In 1861 on this very site, a tented structure known as Long’s Saloon opened for business as a local watering hole for thirsty miners with the permanent building being erected in 1879.

The Gold Pan Saloon has existed for over 140 years playing host to gunfights, outlasting Prohibition, and boasting the longest continuous liquor license west of the Mississippi.
