  • Our tour guide Andy was amazing and extremely knowledgeable! The house was gorgeous and it was interesting to learn the history about the house, the town, and Colorado. We learned a lot and had fun!
  • Amazing Victorian home with all the period furnishings. The modest admission fee is well worth it!
