Redstone Inn

-A A +A
1902, Boal and Harnois. 82 Redstone Blvd.

The centerpiece of John Osgood's crusade to improve workers' housing in Redstone was this forty-room boarding house for bachelor miners. Alpine-style half timbering and wood trim abound on three wings with clipped gable roofs, including a new west wing surrounding a courtyard dominated by a square clock tower. The inn, renovated and reopened in 1983, welcomes guests all year to its spacious parlors with large stone fireplaces and elegant reading, dining, and recreation rooms with oak furniture designed by Gustav Stickley. This inn had a clubhouse, theater, school, library, and hot springs plunge. Workers were expected to rise to this new environment: to dress for dinner and obey strict rules curbing profanity, gambling, and overindulgence.
