    This house is significant and an excellent representative of the larger Queen Anne style dwellings erected in Colorado Springs in the late 19th century. Representative features of the style reflected in this house include the asymmetrical composition with multiple gables and corner tower, the shingled walls, the decorative cornice with dentil molding and paneling, the cut-away corners of the bay on the south, the variety of windows, the elaborated entrance and the wrap-around porch.

    Built about 1896, the initial residents were Arthur and Lucinda D. Peck. Arthur was a member of the Fountain Colony, engaged in real estate, and later participated in the Cripple Creek District mining boom. Later converted to apartments, the structure now serves as a bed and breakfast inn. National Register eligible.
