Events You Won't Want to Miss

We have exciting things planned for Thursday, so come early!!

Deadwood Brothel Museum

Where: 610 Main Street, Deadwood

Walk through one of Deadwood’s houses of prostitution, an industry that operated illegally in the city from 1876 until 1980, when a raid by federal agents finally closed them for good.

Brothels were a fixture on the second story of buildings on Deadwood’s Main Street for more than a century.

Visitors will be transported through this 104-year story with a guided tour of the rooms at 610 Main Street, the original site of the Shasta Rooms brothel. The rooms are curated with a variety of period appropriate furnishings.

Tickets:  $15 each plus ticket company fees. Please note you need to meet at the museum and there is a 23-step stairway to get up to the museum.

Times: Two tours 10:00 and 11:00 am.

The Power of Place: Building a Strong Setting

People and the places they inhabit are intertwined. Authors need memorable characters, as well as vivid settings, in the stories they tell. The characters need a place–or places–for the plot to unfold.
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to build solid backdrops for your story. We’ll take a setting from your novel and help it come alive in a new way, using personification and sensory detail. The goal by the end of the workshop is to develop your setting as a character that shines through on its own.
Come with an open mind, ready to create and to explore the role of setting in your story. Your other characters will thank you.
