HistoryAmong the more popular, longest-lasting and notorious roadhouses during Prohibition in Jefferson County, the Silver State club stood at the county's eastern edge ready to take business from nearby Denverites. Known to be a gambling resort, it was ran by Mike Mongone, Lena Mongone, Emma Gaskin and the infamous John Doe. Silver State was permanently busted in 1927, padlocked by the Court and its assets liquidated.
