The Upstairs Brothel
in the Stepehns Block
Frank Stephens was a wealthy man who owned real estate in Butte, Montana.
Upstairs in the Stephen's Block were rooms for rent for men who had moved west seeking their fortunes. Marge Vincent - Coombs wrote: " the rooms were small with a 'bathroom down the hall'. "
Also upstairs was a Brothel. It is believed that Frank Stephens did not run the brothel, he just owned the building and the property. At street level in the Stephens Block was either a grocery store and meat market.
