Isabel is named for Isabel Nesmith Evans, president of the Colorado Iron Works, the company that built and operated this 19th century foundry. Nesmith Evans came to Denver as an infant in a covered wagon in 1860, and in her 20s and 30s served as treasurer of the Iron Works before taking over as president in 1907. She is thought to have been the first female industrialist in Denver. By day Isabel oversaw a workforce of 275 men producing mining equipment, and by night she hosted lively theme parties at her house in Capitol Hill that were regularly covered in the press. She often personalized the inside cover of her books with the ancient Nesmith family crest and its creed: not by knaverie, but by braverie. Isabel allows guests to connect with her legacy by highlighting the bones of the soaring industrial building while honoring her legendary warmth and hospitality.
