William C. and Mary A. Stark, prosperous Colorado Springs residents who owned the successful Stark-Lowell hardware store, erected this house. Built around 1906, the house is a well-preserved example of the Colonial Revival style that was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house displays a hipped roof with full-width porch with classical columns, modillions, dentil molding, rectangular windows with eight lights in the upper sash, brick construction splayed lintels with keystones and entrance with elliptical fanlight and sidelights. The house reflects a brick version of the transitional period when Colonial Revival details were combined with massing of the late Victorian era.
Mrs. Amelia B. Buchanan, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stark, owned the house until 1941. National Register eligible.
