Harry Elliott’s success in the silver fields of New Mexico is evident in this extravagant house. Elliott never lived in the house, which he had built for his parents and sister, but instead he resided in a smaller house that still stands at the rear of the property. The house’s spacious town lot is enclosed by a cast-iron fence and includes a carriage house in the rear and several shade trees. The large two-and-a-half-story house is built of red brick and has a third-story widow’s walk under a bell-shaped roof prominently marking one corner of the building. Porches at the first and second floors on the south and east elevations are supported by columns of turned wood, with wood balustrades. The house’s interior includes multi-colored wood flooring fitted in complex patterns. Elliott’s sister, Adeline Woods, lived in the house until her death in 1950.
