Saloon and Restaurant Owner
Mrs. I. Barash
Isaac Barash and his wife were in Leadville from 1880 to 1883. In 1880, Barash worked for J. Rich & Co. and resided near Pine Street, between 2nd and Chestnut Street. In the 1882 directory Barash is listed as owning a saloon at 208 East 3rd Street. The next year he was running a restaurant at 123 Harrison Avenue, and his residence was 613 North Pine Street. In 1883, Mrs. I Barash attended that year’s Purim Ball. The Barash family does not appear in Leadville records after 1883 and it is likely they left town.
