Bloom Mansion Museum

-A A +A
1882; 1963 restoration. E. Main St. (southwest corner of Walnut St.) (NR)

Frank and Sarah Bloom selected their Second Empire house design from a magazine and had a local contractor build it. The three-story home bristles with cresting and a weathervane atop the metal-clad fourth-story mansard tower. The red brick is frosted with white stone quoins, while the first floor is wrapped in an elegant frame veranda. The Colorado Historical Society has fastidiously restored the mansion as a house museum in conjunction with the Baca House next door.
