Fuller House

-A A +A
1895, Montezuma Fuller. 226 W. Magnolia St. (near northwest corner of Howes St.) (NR)

The Queen Anne Style home of Fort Collins's first architect is a two-story brick with an asymmetrical facade and ornate front porch. Fuller used raised stringcourses, shingled gables, and corbeled chimneys of tapestry brick. The rising sun motif of the porch gable is repeated in an elaborate Eastlake screen on the gable end.

Montezuma W. (Monty) Fuller, who practiced in Fort Collins from 1880 until his death in 1925, was a carpenter, builder, and architect. Many of his buildings, both commercial and residential, still stand. His son Robert, after practicing with his father for a few years, moved to Denver, where he joined Robert Roeschlaub. The Roeschlaub-Fuller firm, the oldest in Colorado, is perpetuated by Montezuma's grand-son, Kenneth, and great-grand-son, Robert, contemporary Denver architects.
