To the south of Colorado College on the wide, tree-shaded Cascade Avenue stands a small, English-style cottage built in 1873. This cottage was the home of the Henry McAllister family that was influential in the establishment of Colorado Springs. It was opened to the public as a museum in 1961 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

  • My third grader really enjoyed his tour today. He was excited to see the Civil War sword and the children's toys. Thanks for an informative and fun tour!
