  • 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!

    Repair of Hail Damage

    July 16th, 2014

    The museum was a victim of the huge hail storm that hit Colorado Springs in May, 2014.  Thanks once again to Aspen Glass the broken windows in the museum were repaired the next day for free.  The damage to the south side of the Carriage House was another matter but this week painters started on the repair work.  It will be nice to see our former barn/stable back in good condition.

    Cleansing the Museum

    Intuitive Consultants, Dr. Anne Salisbury and Greg Meyerhoff of Go Intuition visited the museum on July 9, 2014 to cleanse the energy of the House.  In the last few years we’ve had lightning strikes, hail damage, furnace collapses, leaky air conditioner, gas leaks and much more.  Many of these maintenance issues are to be expected in an old house but it seemed lately that the minute one item was repaired, another broke.  Anne is a Colonial Dame and so volunteered herself and her patient husband to come see what they could do.  We will be receiving a full report from them on what they found but for now we know Major McAllister says he and his family would NEVER haunt the house!  It was a happy home with the sound of children laughing and running (though never in the formal dining room or parlor).  And they stored apples in the cellar.
