Turners ~ Colorado ~  1870

This German society, so well-known and so much revered by the children of the "Fatherland" in every country, has already been firmly established in the principal cities of the Territory. At Denver the Turners are numerous, and their society in a prosperous condition.

At Central they have a fine hall, well-furnished and fitted up as a gymnasium and concert and dance hall, with necessary dressing and withdrawing rooms. The building, which was formerly an extensive ore mill, was purchased by the society for the sum of $3,000, and additions and improvements have been added at an additional cost of $5,000; and, altogether, the hall is well adapted to the purposes of the society, and is valuable property, and under the charge of A. Carstens, who resides on the premises.

The Turners of Central, Black Hawk and Nevada are united in one society, under the following officers:

Charles Steinle, President; E. Goldman
Number of members, forty
