    February 1st, 2013

    If you’re at the Penrose library at 20 North Cascade Ave in Colorado Springs during the month of February 2013, be sure to look at the display case showing the McAllister Family through four generations. ┬áLovingly put together by our volunteers it shows the House and Family that the museum represents.
