It was closed when we stopped by. There is a Geocache in the tree in the yard so all was not lost. Easy street parking or a lot in the back. Interesting area.

We had time, and we appreciated the the docent who filled it with the history of Colorado Springs, the McAllisters, and their well-built two-story home--the oldest remaining house and third oldest building left in town. The original surrounding property has been sub-divided and sold, leaving the carriage house in back as the office and shop. The furnishings and decor are... More

Toured this for the first time in May 2012. The guide gave a very thorough tour and history of the house. Worth the stop.

Went at Christmas--looks like it was decorated from Hobby Lobby--nothing authentic in the decorating. Nice gift shop.

Home to Major Henry McAllister, this house was built in 1873 and has been a museum for 50 years. Fascinating tour giving early history of Colorado Springs as well as life in the late 1800s.
