I visited the Gilpin History Museum in Central City, CO, recently and found a sign that said…
The last three madams in Central City were May Martin, Lizzie Thomas, and Lou Bunch (who bought her house from Martin in 1900). The Thomas brothel shut down in 1910. Bunch closed her house in 1916, giving her the distinction of being Central City’s last madam.
It immediately reminded me of Dixie, Elsie and Pam, the last three madams of Deadwood, South Dakota.
If you were having triplets (three girls), and you had to give them either one set of names or the other, which set would you pick?
