The House of Mirrors, at 1942 Market Street, was constructed by Madam Jennie Rogers, in 1889 and became the classiest bordello in the Rocky Mountain West. The six-foot tall Rogers, born Leah J. Tehme, arrived in Denver in 1880, instantly recruiting the most seductive women in town. Her bust is carved into the pediment above the busts of men she supposedly blackmailed into building the house. It boasted a dining room, three parlours, a ball room, a wine cellar and fifteen bedrooms. Jennie's rival, Mattie Silks bought the place in 1911 and operated the business until it was closed by federal edict about 1915. The building was a Buddhist temple and warehouse from 1920 until 1998.
