Gano-Bradley Mansion

-A A +A
1920, William E. Fisher and Arthur A. Fisher. 4100 S. University Blvd.

Clothier George Gano and his wife fashioned their thirty-two-room mansion after an English manor house. Elizabethan, Jacobean, and Tudor elements adorn the two-story house of hand-molded brick under a steeply pitched roof with multiple cross gables. The round-arched entry shelters a heavy board-and-batten door with hand-wrought iron fittings. The interior is adorned with oak-beamed ceilings, leaded and stained glass windows, hand-wrought iron fixtures, and five fireplaces. Robert Bradley, who bought the house in 1962, reported poltergeists in the parlor and bats in the attic of what has become one of Colorado's most storied “haunted houses,” appropriately shrouded by a grove of cottonwood trees.
