Mattie The Madam

Pioneer career woman started brothel franchise

She charged high prices and let her girls keep half the money, but she was pretty creative...she franchised.

Mattie the Madam even opened a brothel in Alaska.

Now you can tour her haunts in Denver, where it all began on Market Street, "named for the flesh market that proliferated there," according to Denver History Tours.

Learn more about the legacy of Mattie The Madam at Denver History Tours.
