Winfield Scott Stratton discovered the Independence Mine near Cripple Creek, Colorado on July 4, 1891. Stratton became involved with The Brown Palace in the early 1900s when he acquired Henry Brown’s outstanding mortgages. He remained part of the hotel’s ownership until it was purchased by Horace W. Bennett and Charles Boettcher in 1922. This adjoining room can now be opened to create the Onyx Suite.
