The Victor Hotel is located in the heart of the tiny town of Victor, Colorado, which is just south of Cripple Creek. The hotel was first built in 1899 but was destroyed by a fire that same year.

After rebuilding the hotel we know today across the street, the building served as numerous things over the years including a morgue and a boarding house for local miners.

One miner by the name of Eddy lived in room 301 and, according to some, is still around.

Eddy met tragedy one night as he left his room to board the elevator and before he could realize that the elevator itself wasn't on the third floor with him, fell down the shaft to his death.

The hotel is currently open and many renovations have been made over the years, but the elevator is still there and is currently the oldest functioning elevator in the state of Colorado.
