Exploring the Old North End of Colorado Springs – A Guide to its History and Architecture

by Jennifer Wendler Lovell and Robert D. Loevy

Walk Through History

The historic and picturesque Old North End neighborhood of Colorado Springs developed rapidly following the discovery of gold in nearby Cripple Creek and Victor in the 1890s. The building boom of this prosperous period resulted in a neighborhood with strong visual continuity and high-quality, distinctive architecture. Along its wide tree-lined streets and landscaped medians, a harmonious assortment of homes and mansions provide a fascinating study of turn of the century 20th century architectural styles.

This volume explores the history and architecture of the Old North End neighborhood and highlights some of its most prominent and influential residents. Containing over 200 archival and contemporary photographs, its six walking tours feature 136 neighborhood houses and their historic owners.

Jennifer Wendler Lovell is an architectural historian and historic preservation consultant. Robert D. Loevy is a noted author and professor at Colorado College. Both are Old North End residents.
