This 1891 Queen Anne sits on a tenth of an acre in Pueblo, Colo.

Why it's on the register: An outstanding example of this style of architecture, it's significant because of its first owner, Matthew Galligan, a Pueblo city alderman, judge and developer, says Anna Wade, the owner and an agent with Queen Ann Real Estate.

During a 1921 flood, Galligan let reporters use the third floor to write their articles, according to "Industrial Utopia: The History and Architecture of South Pueblo."

What makes it memorable: It has a turret with a copper dome, a wraparound front porch and all of the original woodwork, made with oak, cherry, mahogany and pine, Wade says.

At 3,382 square feet, many of the rooms run 18 to 20 feet long, she says. The home retains period details, like pocket doors, two original fireplaces, gas fixtures, and solid-wood doors.

It has four bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms and three stairways, including the grand staircase with the original stained glass window, she says.

The third-floor attic was converted into a 1,000-square-foot master suite with a Victorian-style bathroom and claw-foot tub, Wade says. And the kitchen was modernized and upgraded for commercial use, she says.
