Louis Dupuy's legendary Hotel de Paris dates to the silver mining boom. "Famous the wide world over," the hotel served as a first-class French restaurant, a showroom for traveling salesmen, and a luxurious accommodation during the opulent Gilded Age.
Hotel de Paris Museum displays a significant collection of objects from the hotel's past in restored period rooms. Over 7,000 square feet remain furnished with faithful arrangements of historic artifacts that accurately and honestly tell the story of Louis Dupuy, the "father of domestic science."
