Gray Cottage

-A A +A
1882. 125 E. 5th St. (NR)

Profuse Carpenter's Gothic detail inspired the Salida Mountain Mail to call this house “a daisy,” “first rate in every respect,” and “the neatest home in the country.” Garret and Julia Gray, enriched by their Madonna Mine on Monarch Pass, piled ornament on this eclectic clapboard cottage with pineapple pendants at the entry.
