The Rosemount Estate (Museum) is located in Pueblo and is considered Colorado's Crown Jewel! Having toured many estates, including the historic Newport, Rhode Island mansions of our nation's wealthiest families, we place Rosemount right up with the most elegant! It is a must see for anyone that loves historic homes of grandeur!
Rosemount was built in 1893 for the John and Margaret Thatcher family. Mr. Thatcher established the first bank in Pueblo and later established banks throughout Colorado. Rosemount took 3 years to be built. It is unique compared to other historic estates in that 80% of its furnishings are original to Rosemount! The beautiful exterior stonework was quarried near Castle Rock, Colorado.
