Cultural History: 

This house was built prior to 1912 to house the manager at the Pueblo mine, Mr. Greenough. The residence was vacated after the mine ceased operations toward the end of the of World War I. It was purchased by Billy Carr and moved downtown in sections by Mr. Laurent Cyr to a Main Street site believed to be the present location of the Gold Rush Inn. 

The house was subsequently used as a law office by Henry Regher and later as a medical /dental office. It was moved to Jeckell Street in 1971 and was gutted by fire on Nov. 30, 1993. The house has since been renovated on the interior and exterior leaving few signs of its age.

In 2000 the building renovated to serve as a hostel, there are now 6 sixs available for rent.
