McAllister House Architecture: A Moral Influence in a Country Home

Presented by McAllister House Museum at McAllister House Museum, Colorado Springs CO

Nov 23 2019
McAllister House Architecture: A Moral Influence in a Country Home presented by McAllister House Museum at McAllister House Museum, Colorado Springs CO

Join us for a presentation about the history of the McAllister House architecture.

The McAllisters built their dream home on North Cascade using a design originally created by the famous landscape architect Andrew Jackson Downing in the mid-nineteenth Century. Downing viewed the family home as the center of American moral education and the focus of a middle-class search for the meaning of life.

McAllister House Museum Director, Eric Metzger, will give a talk on Downing’s influence on our nation, the Downing design, and why the McAllisters chose it for their own.
