Miramont Castle in Manitou Springs, Colorado is a castle-esque mansion operated as a museum by Manitou Springs Historical Society. Envisaged by Father Francolon, construction of the property started in 1895 and in 1977 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places – partly due to the various architectural styles incorporated in its design.
As describe on the Miramont Castle website; “From the medieval, crenellated battlements at each end of the Castle, to the beautiful Gothic front door, Miramont stands as a tribute to one man's dream”. “Shingle-style Queen Anne, Romanesque, English Tudor, Flemish stepped gables, domestic Elizabethan, Venetian Ogee, Byzantine, Moorish, and half-timber Chateau are used randomly throughout the four stories. For example, the Grand Staircase has two sets of windows, each in a different architectural style”.
Visitors to the museum can learn about the history of both the house and the Manitou Springs area whilst also experiencing life as it would have been in Victorian times – thirty rooms with authentic Victorian furnishings can be viewed.
