This place is just as the women left it to avoid a raid. Until very recently, prostitution was openly practiced with the complicit approval of the local sheriff and police. The madams were an important part of the community.

A test to behold. Complete time warp but like it was still working. Amazing indite to a service that provided a need for a working community. This place must be preserved. A highlight from our visit.

We did not visit this attraction. Wanted to, but I am disabled and couldn't get to everything. Wish we had.
