History of the After Supper Bed & Breakfast:
On a hillside overlooking Black Hawk sits the After Supper Bed & Breakfast. Operated by Bill and Dixie Lovingier, the After Supper gets its name from a mining claim just 200 yards to the east.
The After Supper Lode was originally registered as a mining claim on June 28, 1884. Four years later, a patent signed by President Grover Cleveland was issued to the After Supper prospector.
Though the mine claim was worked extensively, its yield was only about $80,000 in gold and silver, surely a disappointment to its owner during at a time when some of the other claims in the area were making their owners fabulously wealthy.
The mining claim changed hands several times, and was finally picked up at a tax sale by Otto Blake, Dixie's grandfather. He left it to his daughter Elizabeth, Dixie's mother, and it remains in the family today.
Today the After Supper B&B has wonderful gardens and an incredible view. It's almost hard to believe that a block away there are bustling casinos and gamblers! Here are some of the garden pictures.
|The house itself is beautiful! Hardwood throughout, it also boasts a nice lush green lawn, and plenty of places to hang out. An elaborate garden setting, with sun table and a deck with a great view.|
Walk to the town casinos in less than five minutes. Once in Black Hawk, it's easy to get around between casinos... just hop on one of the many free shuttles. The casinos are open until 2 a.m. It's even easy to get to Central City on a free shuttle. Central City is only 1 mile from Black Hawk.
What other kinds of activities can you find around town? Mostly gambling, but you can also find entertainment!

A half mile up the road is Central City. Central City is much more accurately preserved, and has not been overwhelmed by casinos. They do exist, though . . . In historically preserved buildings!
