McAllister House Colorado Springs
McAllister House Colorado Springs, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is an excellent place for a quick look into the Colorado of the late 19th century. It was built in 1873, and the builder, an army major named Henry McAllister, decided to construct the house with brick when he learned that the local wind was so strong it had blown a train off the tracks nearby. The house has many original furnishings, including three marble fireplaces. It is now owned by the Colonial Dames of America, whose knowledgeable volunteers lead one-hour guided tours.
Through careful research and restoration, the Colonial Dames, aided by generous gifts, have been able to return McAllister House Colorado Springs to the original charm and elegance that greeted our first community leaders. Today’s visitors may tour this home, which is in a neighborhood of historic Victorians. Knowledgeable guides and staff help recreate the city and family history making the house and its pioneering occupants live again.
