Miller-Robinson House

-A A +A
1897. 127 W. Carr Ave. (NR)

Charles N. Miller, a gold broker, built the finest residence in town, this two-story Queen Anne house subsequently owned by William Robinson, a mayor of Cripple Creek and publisher of the Cripple Creek Gold Rush. Built on two lots, this example of Victorian residential architecture has three fishscale-shingled gables decorated with scalloped bargeboard. Two balustraded porches grace the front of the house. The first-floor porch is decorated with latticework, cutout frame arches, and spindles. The second-floor porch has a triple-arched cutout gable.
