Notes:
The El Paso Club is one of Colorado Springs' landmark buildings. Organized on October 23, 1877, the El Paso Club is believed to be one of the oldest active private town clubs west of Chicago. The building that the club now occupies was erected by Professor James H. Kerr of Colorado College as his home in 1883. The club purchased this residence in 1890 and has occupied the building ever since. Additions and renovations to the building were designed by architect Thomas MacLaren in 1909. The current gardens reflect work done by horticulturist Bridget O'Hara in 1991.
Persons associated with the property include: James H. Kerr (former owner, 1883-1890); Thomas MacLaren (architect, 1883); and Bridget O'Hara (horticulturist, 1991).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets and a 1992 booklet on the history of the club.
