Denver’s famous saloon was founded in 1893 by Henry H. “Shorty Scout” Zietz. Zietz himself was a local legend. At the age of 10 he ran away from home and met Colonel William “Bufallo Bill” Cody.
Within two years he was one of Cody’s scouts. Later he was also a rider for the Pony Express, and then finally a bodyguard of Leadville’s silver millionaire H. A. W. Horace. Tiring of this wild life he settled in Denver and opened his saloon, which catered to railroad workers and travelers stopping at the depot across the street.
