The Gable House

Durango was first established as a town in 1880, and much like the many other towns in Colorado from that time period there are many homes built with a Victorian design. This one here is called the Gable House. The Gable House today is a Bed and Breakfast establishment, but this home has a long history. It was built in 1892 by a local man who was a merchant and a flour miller named James Schutt and his wife, Eliza. For a more detailed history, visit the link above. It will take you the The Gable House's web site.
I would love to stay here for a night. I hear it is haunted too.
