Cat house is another name for a brothel. Bluff street is the first street you come to in Lake City coming down from where the silver mines use to be. It naturally was the place where the painted ladies ran their houses. Hell's acre as the rest of the town referred to it. There aren't any signs of what went on then, with the exception of this one house. The present owners displayed their house numbers in a playful little way...notice the cat?
