-A A +A
1922, William Stickney. 104 E. Rio Grande St. (northeast corner of S. Tejon St.) (NR)

Beneath four ornate compound chimneys and a steep, multigabled roof, this three-story Tudor Revival structure has variegated brick walls, half timbering, and sandstone trim. Brick and stone Tudor arches above the original oak doors lead to an interior decorated and scaled for children, with Mother Goose murals by Allen Tupper True, a Colorado Springs native.
