The tour is an inexpensive, self-guided walk up four stories, so climbing stairs is required. Since we went at our own pace, this did not present a problem. The rooms were full of antiques, and the architecture was impressive. The windows in particular were amazing!...More

Pretty pricy for admission, but a neat historical place to visit. There is a tea room where you can eat. We did not have reservations, but were fortunate enough to eat there. That was worth the money spent!!

Beautiful home. A lot of local fire and military exhibits. I did a read up prior to visiting which helped understand homes history and uniqueness. Love the 9 styles of architecture and having that gorgeous piece of history still intact in beautiful Manitou Springs.

Beautiful building that is being rebuilt and refurbished. The Fire Department side is well set up and interesting. The upper floors show more of the original building and history, wish we could have seen more rooms. The house itself is the star of the show....More
