  • 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 to North Foundation Wall

    April 9th, 2012


    With the help of Murphy Constructors, we began the repair of the cellar collapse and reinforcement of the North Foundation wall.  Work had to be done when the air conditioner could be removed and before any spring rains.  (There’s still hope for ‘spring rains’ in Colorado Springs!)  Murphy Constructors  with their vast experience in historical construction brought in experienced crew and old field stone and completed the work in less than two weeks.  We are still hoping to receive grant money to finish paying for this work but are delighted we have the building back in good repair!!

      Looks like another great job by our friends from Murphy Constructors. Many thanks to them and to the McAllister Museum team who arranged for this work.
