Furman House

This colorful building is next to the Visitor Center in Leadville CO and it is a private residence (for sale when we were there but we didn't buy it).

It is an example of Queen Anne architecture.  Augustus Englebach, a foundry and machine plant manufacturer, had the house built by Francis Colohan in 1895.  A number of doctors made this their residence and office in later years.  It was also occupied by the USO during World War II.

Evelyn Furman, owner of the Tabor Opera House (which I'll show you later) became the owner in February of 1946.

It's a pretty thing, isn't it?
