The West’s Most Sinful City

Denver once had the reputation of “The West’s Most Sinful City.” It was filled with bordellos and casinos. They ranged from ornate establishments to cheap, dangerous, cheating dives. Bloody murder stalked the community. All the while, self-righteous advocates of good government sought to clean up the town. What happened, how a brothel operated, tales of crooked cops and the many ghosts of lower downtown are featured in this lively walk through Denver’s past and present.
