    After Augusta and Horace Tabor's divorce in 1883, Augusta continued to live in the couple's grand Denver mansion until 1893, when she moved to the Brown Palace Hotel and leased the mansion to the Commercial Club of Denver. Still a sharp businesswoman, she died in 1895 with an estate worth at least $1 million.
