    This building is representative of the small frame dwellings with Queen Anne details erected in Colorado Springs during the late 19th century. Representative features of the style include the decorative shingles and lap siding, the asymmetrical composition, the bay window and porch with turned spindle supports.

    The South End neighborhood was developed as an area housing middle families seeking to own their own homes. The house was built around 1894. The earliest known occupants were Oswald F. Tolley, the son of the choir director for St. Paul's Cathedral in London, his wife Lizzie and their children. Locally significant
