Thomas House Museum

209 Eureka Street, Central City

Built in 1867, this Greek Revival frame residence is rumored to be built around the entrance to a mine. This unique house, "frozen in time," represents a typical middle class family home. The house looks almost the same as it did when the Thomas family, who bought the house in 1894, moved to Denver in 1917. The house remained intact and in the family, as a summer home, until 1987. At that time it was turned in to a museum.
