REDSTONE, Colo. -- The new owners of a 1897 Colorado castle know a thing or two about historic hotels.

The new owners of the Redstone Castle are Steve and April Carver, the owners of the historic Hotel Denver in Glenwood Springs.

The Carvers bought Redstone Castle for $2.2 Million at an auction in October, but their identities weren't revealed until Wednesday.

"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a precious piece of history,” said Steve Carver in a statement sent to Denver7.  "Acquiring the extraordinary Redstone Castle will be an exciting new adventure and an opportunity to revitalize this celebrated jewel of Colorado."

Redstone Castle, also known as Cleveholm Manor, was originally built in 1897 for John Cleveland Osgood.

In 1900, Osgood was the 6th wealthiest man in America. He made his money in coal and steel.

Redstone Castle hosted famous guests over the years including John D. Rockefeller, J. Pierpont Morgan and Teddy Roosevelt.

The Carvers said they will continue allowing tours of the castle. They also hope to host weddings in the future and plan to renovate several large suites to rent for lodging.

"The accommodations will be lovely and very historic,” said April Carver.

The Hotel Denver, in Glenwood Springs, is across the street from the train depot. The hotel celebrated its 100th anniversary last year.
