The Baldpate Inn boasts the world’s largest key collection, housed in a quaint, historic inn tucked above the Estes Valley. This funky collection of over 20,000 keys includes exotics such as the keys to Westminster Abbey and Mozart’s wine cellar, plus thousands of keys from locations around the globe. Houses in Toledo, gates in Australia, dungeons in Europe…

The White House declined to donate a key (you can view the signed letter from the President), but there is a key to the Pentagon (uh, that’s not disconcerting at all. Just national security and whatnot…)!

The keys, organized by location, cover virtually every surface of The Key Room, and you can get lost for a long time reading about each one.

Congratulations Richard. Fascinating. And beautifully photographed. I fully intended to leave a comment during voting. I think I just got lost in it.

interesting place. Did some research on it to educate myself :)
Perfectly captured to show the place in only one picture. Congrats on the ribbon.

Funny that the place was also build in 1917
