"A bullet wedged in the wall of the Grand Imperial Hotel is a reminder of Silverton's wilder days. President Theodore Roosevelt's 1905 visit to the Hotel Colorado sparked the creation of the Teddy Bear. The Brown Palace Hotel accommodated the 1964 visit of the Beatles and pop culture history was made. Many Colorado hotels are said to be haunted. In the legendary Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, ghosts reportedly roamed long before Stephen King's visit." ---- promotional blurb.
