Creswell Mansion

1244 Grant Street

John J. Huddart designed the 1889 sandstone house for Denver businessman Joseph Creswell. Huddart was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the city’s finest architects. His buildings were known for the quality of their design and construction. The mansion, built during the middle of Huddart’s career, exemplifies his fondness for eclecticism. In this case he skillfully combined elements of Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival architecture.
