REDSTONE, Colo. (AP) -- A Colorado mansion formerly owned by a coal baron, a Rockefeller and a Roosevelt is set to go to auction in October.

The Post Independent reports that the property in Pitkin County, known as Redstone Castle, is set to be auctioned on Oct. 7 for at least $2 million.

The 42-room estate was opened by mining magnate John C. Osgood in 1902. Since then the estate at 58 Redstone Blvd. has hosted Theodore Roosevelt and John D. Rockefeller.

The estate is a 23,000-square-foot main residence appointed with silk-upholstered walls, gold leaf ceilings, Tiffany lamps, a 12-stall carriage house and grounds totaling 150 acres.
