Nevertheless, Central City plays two important roles in the story of the Tabors: the real Baby Doe spent roughly three years there between 1877 and 1880, just prior to meeting Horace, and the opera The Ballad of Baby Doe was given its world premiere there in 1956.
And it was also the focus of much civic celebration when, in early March of 1878, it was itself dedicated, with a series of performances that most certainly saw Baby Doe in the audience, accompanied by either her husband Harvey or her good friend Jacob Sandolowski, (aka Jake Sands), or both.
But, in the end, Central City today personifies the classic Colorado dilemma: urban development outcomes imposed on an extreme and sensitive rural environment, mixed with the clash of high and low culture in a setting straddling three centuries.
