Site of Butch Cassidy Bank Robbery For Sale in Telluride


Soulless mountain town condos are a dime a dozen these days. Well, not exactly a dime, but they certainly are in relative abundance when compared with properties that list "site of a bank robbery by Butch Cassidy" in the amenities. If that got your attention, then take a look at the Mahr Building in downtown Telluride, which has just come down $800,000 to a listing price of $2,749,000 and was built on the site of bank that played host to the infamous outlaw's first bank robbery way back in 1889. Built in 1908 after the bank burned down and remodeled nine years ago, the Mahr Building has two floors of "irreplaceable" commercial real estate with the original "house front" facade built by St. Louis, Missouri's Mesker Brothers Iron Works, 3,676 square feet, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. You could also split the space, leaving the 1,800 feet of commercial space on the first floor intact while reserving the upstairs floor, which includes the full bath, den, and large office/living space, for you and yours. Either way, you'll be the proud owner of one of the most unique and storied ski town properties you could hope to get your hands on and checkbook open for.
