Some physical evidence of the Tellers remains in Central City—his office, the Teller House, St. James Methodist Church, and the opera house—but much has disappeared. To the casual visitor that hardly tells the tale of this family who once lived, laughed, worried, and worked there. Shakespeare caught this truth in Macbeth with these familiar words: “Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.”
Fortunately, photography came to Central on the heels of its founding. Thus the shadow has been preserved and even though it's heard no more, it can still be seen.
