Long Description:
"The 1894 Crawford House is important for the local contributions of its original owners, James and Margaret Crawford. The couple was among the most influential pioneering families in northwest Colorado. The construction of this, their third home, demonstrated their faith in the permanence of Steamboat Springs. Further development of the community resulted from James Crawford’s involvement in many local and regional enterprises. The house is a rare local example of residential Romanesque Revival style architecture and the only residence within the city limits built entirely of native ashlar sandstone." (from (visit link) )
