Hospitality House (Teller County Hospital)

-A A +A
Teller County Hospital
1901, C. E. Troutman. 1992, restoration, David M. Barber. North end of B St.

After decades of neglect and abandonment, this two-story white elephant with Neoclassical trim was acquired by the Mackin family during the 1970s. They converted it to a hotel and headquarters for a mobile home park. The large hospital has a glass-enclosed two-story front porch framed between wooden Ionic columns and a grand, pressed red brick entry arch. A discreet rear addition and the eighteen original rooms, restored by Colorado Springs architect David Barber, use a hospital theme to tickle the fancy of tourists wanting “intensive care.”
