Long Description:
This four-story brick Victorian structure was built in 1880, and served as the permanent edifice of the Brinker Collegiate Institute until 1889. From 1889 until 1904, the property was remodeled and opened first as the Richelieu Hotel, then the Navarre. In 1893, owner Owen LeFevre had an underground rail system built to the Brown Palace Hotel across the street which accommodated unseen passage as well as coal delivery. Beginning in 1914, the Navarre served as a private club or restaurant. This building with a diverse history, ranging from collegiate institution to Denver's classiest bordello and gambling hall, is currently in use as the Museum of Western Art.
