The New Sheridan Hotel
The original Sheridan Hotel was built in 1895 in Telluride Colorado. Two years later a three-story structure was built just east of it, and that building was called the New Sheridan Hotel. The New Sheridan was the site of William Jennings Bryan "Cross of Gold" speech. In 1906 the original hotel burned and in 1994 ( a mere 86 years later) it was recontructed. The early photo was taken in 1899.
