Downtown Colorado Springs Victorian Homes

During the gold rush of the late 1890’s in nearby Cripple Creek, people flooded into Colorado Springs with their newfound wealth and built homes worthy of their new social status. Houses were built along Wood Avenue, Cascade Avenue, Tejon Street, and their adjoining side streets, and would soon be known as Millionaire Row. Here is just a sampling of some of the magnificent Victorian homes that grace the Old North End of downtown Colorado Springs.

  2. 1521 Wood Avenue was built by my great grandfather, George Krause. He and his wife, Hattie, and two kids lived there. George was secretary to Palmer and helped bring the railroad out to the Springs. He owned the old CO Coal mining Company as well. My grandfather, also George Krause, ran the Antlers Hotel and the Company. Dorothy Krause, one of the two kids, owned City Officr Supply and lived in the house until her death in 1968. It passed to my mother, Frances Broomfield (Krause) who sold it shortly after. My mother and I both lived in that house with Dorothy from 1956 to 1961. I hope this helps fill in some history.
