Alamosa Senior Center (Hunt House)

-A A +A
Hunt House
1879. Near northeast corner of 1st St. and Colorado Ave.

Town founder Alexander C. Hunt built this large clapboard house with Carpenter's Gothic detailing, a second-story portico on the east, and a two-story bay on the south. Over the years the house has been remodeled inside to accommodate a funeral home, a nursing home, and, since the 1970s, a senior center, but the exterior retains much of its rich Italianate trim and dripping vergeboard.
