Redstone's history dates to the late 19th century when J.C. Osgood, director of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company, built Cleveholm Manor, now known as Redstone Castle. Here he entertained other titans of his day, including John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and Teddy Roosevelt. Among the home's embellishments are gold-leaf ceilings, ruby-red velvet walls, silk brocade upholstery, marble and mahogany fireplaces, and Tiffany chandeliers. Plans are afoot to open the Castle
as a luxury hotel and spa, but in the meantime you can check out the extravagance during an entertaining and informative 90-minute tour run by the Redstone Historical Society; call ahead or check the Castle's website to verify tour availability.
