The Stewart House

The Stewart House at 1228 Wood Avenue belongs to the Colorado College. (It seems rather silly to call it a house, because let's face it, this is a mansion!) Built in 1898-99 in the Italianate style by attorney Ralph Preston, it was soon purchased by Philip Stewart in 1902. Mr. Stewart was a businessman and politician who served as a trustee of the school. Late in life he deeded his home to CC, which took over the property upon his death in 1957. Stewart House has a history of hosting interesting people, most famously President Theodore Roosevelt, a great friend of Stewart's, on multiple occasions. It's now used as the residence for the president of the Colorado College, as well as hosting visiting guests and dignitaries.
