Denver in the 1880's was rough and full of crime, and no area was more full of crime than the area now known as Lodo (Lower Downtown). Over 60 saloons were in operation but none was more famous than the Palace Theatre, who many locals described as a "slaughterhouse" due to the high volume of murders taking place there. One murder stood out though, that of young 17 year old dancer Effie Moore.
