It doesn't take long to go through this house of a fairly wealthy African-American with an interesting history in the gold mining era, but it's very interesting. The old house has been nicely restored with wonderful period furniture and memorabilia. And, I like the way they handle the site -- there's a docent there to answer any questions one has, but there's no formal tour. Bravo! And, there's a donation suggested, rather than a fee.

Take an hour to stroll through this restored house and learn about Barney Ford - one of the great entrepreneurs in Colorado. House is really cute. Our guide was well-informed and answered all our questions.

The house is so cute! It's like taking a step back in time. Admission is free; donations accepted.

It was educational and gave us something different to enjoy!
