Cascade Park Apartments (Hagerman Mansion)

-A A +A
Hagerman Mansion
1885, C. S. Wright. 1927, Benjamin Lefkowsky. 610–624 N. Cascade Ave. (northwest corner of Willamette Ave.) (NR)

Sphinxes guard the entry of the pink rhyolite mansion built for James John Hagerman, who spent a fortune he made in Michigan iron mills to construct the Colorado Midland Railroad from Colorado Springs to Grand Junction. Flemish gables crown Tudor-arched windows and dormers in this three-story house, whose grounds once occupied the entire block.

During the 1920s Benjamin Lefkowsky purchased the estate and added L-shaped stuccoed wings to both sides of the house. On the north side, he built a similarly massed Decoesque apartment house. He also converted the carriage house to residential units. By incorporating similar design elements and scale, Lefkowsky accomplished the change without destroying the mansion's character.
