Museum quality Victorian high on a hill


This 1890 Victorian home is located in the historic mining town of Central City, Colorado. It sits on the side of a hill, overlooking the town and keeping watch over the history that has passed her by.

Central City is one of those towns that has, for the most part, stood still over time… with the exception of all the casinos that popped up when Colorado permitted gaming there in the 1990’s. But even the casinos are built inside of Victorian commercial storefront buildings.

Our house specimen of the day has been lovingly preserved by the same family for many years.

The collection of antique furniture and bric-a-brac in this home is stunning!

I’m astonished at the condition of the woodwork and the wood floors (in a good way!) and also the vintage wallpaper…

Two Cupolas with Windows add to its Architectural Charm and bring in an Abundance of Natural Light. The Original Brick Wall in the Kitchen Creates a Cozy Ambiance.

Love that old stove against those exposed brick walls!

This home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in 1,507 square feet…

At first glance, I thought the bed (above) had a really LARGE headboard, but upon closer inspection, I see that it is actually a pair of doors behind the bed!

Is that not the sweetest reading nook ever?

This bathroom photo will make you do a double take:

Apparently, that is the original claw-foot tub. The black stains are just a tad disconcerting on the one hand… adds character on the other hand.

This Victorian could be an old house museum! Kudos to the owners for preserving and maintaining this wonderful home.
