1913, George E. Barton and Maurice B. Biscoe. 2525 S. Nevada Ave. (at Colorado 115 just south of Lake Ave.)

Winfield Scott Stratton used his Cripple Creek gold fortune to build this haven for the elderly poor named in honor of his father. The wrought iron entry gates carry a bronze tablet with the inscription “In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matthew 25:40).” Vast, landscaped grounds are settings for handsome stucco Mediterranean-style villas such as Washington Hall and Independence Hall (both 1913) and eleven other structures.
