Named for Winfield Scott Stratton who discovered the Independence Mine near Cripple Creek, Colorado on July 4, 1891, this adjoining room can now be opened to create the Onyx Suite. Known for his generosity, Stratton became involved with The Brown Palace in the early 1900s when he acquired Henry Brown’s outstanding mortgages. He (and later his estate) remained part of the hotel’s ownership until 1922 when it was purchased by a real estate company owned by Horace W. Bennett and Charles Boettcher.
