Tanner House
300 Fourth Street
1901



Six families have owned this spacious Dutch Colonial home built for banker Frank P. Tanner and family by G. E. Kullerstrand. There are only two homes in Ouray that reflect this type of early American architecture. Designed by architect E. E. Holman, a member of a Philadelphia firm, the house has cherry and oak millwork from Pennsylvania, prismatic Italian glass windows, curved bay windows that are crafted with one-fourth inch thick glass, a stained glass window over a stairway and a stamped metal wreath design in the front porch pediment. The wooden front door repeats the wreath design in wood, not metal. E. E. Holman's plans for material specifications and finishes have been passed down to owners for five generations. The current owner used these plans to restore the house to its original design.
