Denver's Oldest Eatery

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

Now just entering its second century of operation the Buckhorn Exchange is the oldest Eatery to be found in Denver. This establishment was founded by a man named Henry H. "Shorty Scout" Zietz. He was a scout for Buffalo Bill and a friend of the Chief Sitting Bull and his restaurant was host to a variety of cattlemen, miners, gamblers, presidents, and buisnessmen characteristic of early Colorado. Presidents and princesses alike have eaten at this restaurant over the years and beyond being a place to share a meal it is also a piece of history.

Morning Will.

The food must be real good to still be there after a century.  Have you eaten there?

Oh, Will Hamm - Thanks for sharing this historic building and providing the background so I didn't have to look it up! Many great people have dined there or gambled or had important meetings/negotiations in this building. Perhaps a lot of romancing too!

I like how they kept the different shades of brick and didn't try to make it all one shade like in the bottom right corner of the building. I noticed the buckhorns above the windows and I'm sure that was a very prominent and influential person who suggested the red curtains on the 3 front 2nd-floor windows!  

If walls could talk, I would like to hear what Chief Sitting Bull had to say and also Presidents and Princesses! This is a great blog post!!!

Looks like an absolutely fantastic place to have a meal, Will Hamm.  Would love to check it out some time in the future when visiting your city.  Will pass the info on to some friends we have living out your way too ... just in case they are unaware of it ... thanks!
