James H. Crawford's house, with its hipped third-story dormers, is of rough-faced sandstone from nearby Emerald Mountain. The right half of the full-width front porch is surmounted by a triangular pediment over a large, round entry arch. Crawford served as Steamboat's first mayor, postmaster, school superintendent, and state legislator. The Crawford family plot in the Steamboat Springs cemetery has a large granite marker with a carving depicting this house.
