The Historic St. Cloud Hotel
The Hotel St. Cloud is working toward reclaiming its place as the keystone to Historic downtown Cañon City. The Foundation managing the renovation is accepting pledged donations from the community to assist in their efforts.
- Originally built at this location in 1890, the Hotel St. Cloud is one of the oldest hotels still standing in the State of Colorado. Originally constructed in nearby Silver Cliff in 1878-1879, when the silver industry busted, the owner dismantled the hotel and shipped the materials to Canon City, where it was constructed at its current location at 6th and Main.
- It is a contributing building to the National Register “Canon City Downtown Historic District”.
- Excellent example of the Second Empire style
- Elevator added in 1892 – the first in Canon City.
- Bar and billiard room added in 1892.
- Offices of the Cripple Creek Stage, Mail and Express Company were located in the building.
- Decreed a “first class hotel” by the local paper, the Hotel St. Cloud became a popular destination for those visitors who came to Canon City to partake of the healing waters of the natural springs nearby.
- Served as a home away from home for the rich movie-making industry of Canon City’s history. Tom Mix is among the silent film stars who graced the guest registry.
- At one time, was operated by the first female business owner on Main Street
- The Future of Yesterday Foundation, stewards of the building, obtained its 501(c)3 status from the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Colorado.

We had another damaged window at the Hotel St. Cloud! Replacement cost is estimated at $300 to $350. Vice President Jimmy Characky along with volunteer Michael Mahoney responded to the call from the alarm company and went to local hardware store to purchase wood to board up the window. We need your help to restore this historic building and keep it safe!

After many years, the future of the Hotel St Cloud in Cañon City has become bright and positive. This hotel (one of the oldest in the State of Colorado!) has been in a deteriorating condition for decades. Though we, as stewards of this remarkable building have maintained it, there is much work to be accomplished in order to renovate the building. With your involvement it can be restored to its previous grandeur and once again become a crucial part of Main Street and its Historic District community in Cañon City.
Drum Roll Please! The numbers are in! The Prohibition Party hosted by the Future of Yesterday Foundation (a 501c3 Non-profit) to benefit the Hotel St. Cloud raised $8691.85! That is almost $500 more than last year! Thank you to everyone that attended the party, donated to our silent auction, volunteered their time and our generous sponsors Trent Rundell at Allstate & Faricy Ford! See you in December Dollface!
