In the 1880s, Count James Pourtales acquired 2,400 acres at the base of Cheyenne Mountain. He built a lake, platted an upscale suburban development, and built an elegant casino that opened in July 1891. The Georgian-style building included game and billiard rooms, ballrooms, dining rooms, a reading room, and a bar.
