Jack Dempsey Home and Museum

-A A +A
1966. Main St. (Colorado 142) in City Park

The single-room, side-gabled house that was the birthplace of the world champion boxer has been moved from its original location to the town park. A stone fireplace dominates the east gable end, with entry doors on the north and south. Since 1966 the house has been a museum with free admission to exhibits memorializing the “Manassa Mauler.”
