Old West Hotel Christmas Menu 1889
Christmas at the La Veta
Construction for the lavish La Veta was completed in 1884. The D & RG (Denver & Rio Grande) railroad built on to the hotel, using a portion of the first floor for ticket sales and a passenger depot.
This is one clear example of how proximity to the rail stations allows for an abundance of of available products along with people willing, and able to pay for them.
