Baker House

-A A +A
1896, Montezuma Fuller. 304 E. Mulberry St. (NR)
  • (Fort Collins History Connection - March 6th, 1988, by the Fort Collins Coloradoan)

This two-and-one-half-story brick house with a virtually unchanged front facade is trimmed in rough-faced sandstone and brick banding. A semicircular turret pokes out of the steep, gabled roof. A single-story porch wraps the southeast corner, with nine square wooden piers supporting the curved roof. Frederick Baker, the builder and a mayor of Fort Collins, fancied this later adaptation of the Queen Anne Style with triple front gables and a two-story rounded bay.
