Davis-Waggoner House

-A A +A
1899. 207 N. Oak St. (northwest corner of Columbia Ave.)

This large four-square has a typical attic dormer and twin second-story windows. Dentils and quoins emphasize the symmetrical composition on a rectangular plan. This beautifully maintained specimen wears red brick with white wooden trim, including latticework under the Tuscan-columned porch. Constructed for Edwin L. Davis, it is one of old Telluride's finest residences, although it would be a typical home in many Denver neighborhoods. Charles “Buck” Waggoner, president of the Bank of Telluride, later lived here.
