Cripple Creek gave rise to many who would become associated with The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa. Notable figures who began their careers in the early mining town include: prospector and philanthropist W.S. Stratton, real estate developer Horace W. Bennett, and mining magnate Henry M. Blackmer. Blackmer’s son and daughter-in-law later resided in an apartment on the top floor of the hotel.
