Octagon House

-A A +A
1888, Patrick P. Mills. 2201 Grand Ave. (northwest corner of 22nd St.) (NR)
  • (Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

This two-story brick and clapboard dwelling is a side-gabled house hiding behind a large, semi-octagonal front porch topped by a semi-octagonal second story, capped by a smaller, full-octagon third-story tower. It was one of the show homes of Dundee Place (NRD) a historic district of eighteen square blocks. Patrick Mills, perhaps the first architect to open an office in Pueblo, designed the first seven model homes, including this one for realtor John L. Streit.
