Teller House is a historic hotel in Central City, Colorado. Built in 1872, the building also serves as a casino and restaurant.

The bar at the Teller House is well known for the "Face on the Barroom Floor," a painting of a woman's face on the wooden floor, done in 1936 by local artist Herndon Davis, as a joke after being fired by the Teller House.[2]
