    This building is associated with the large Queen Anne style dwellings erected in the downtown area of Colorado Springs during the late 1890's and early 1900's. The house reflects popular elements of later Queen Anne style houses, including the multiple gables (some pedimented), decorative shingles, Queen Anne style windows and other decorative windows and a prominent porch with classical columns.

    Built sometime between 1900 and 1907, the earliest known residents were Dr. David and Mrs. Ida M. Rice. Dr. Rice served as personal physician to W. S. Stratton, and later served as managing director of the Stratton Home, as well as president of the Colorado Springs and Interurban Street Railway Company. By 1931, the structure had been converted into a rooming house. Locally significant.
