Bibliography: (1) Colorado Chieftain, December 31, 1872, Moore & Carlile two choice family residences on the high table land on the south side of the river, when completed, will be quite an ornament of our city. These
residences will have all the modern improvements and will cost $4,000 each.
(2) Colorado Chieftain, January 25, 1884, Within the house the improvements were found quite up to the alterations on the outside. Beautiful marble mantels, tiled hearths, brilliant and costly wall paper, frescoed ceilings, a sumptuous bathroom, a cozy new library, fine Brussells carpets, patent window screens, and all such comforts are found on every side. Good taste and faithful workmanship are displayed throughout. The visitor was piloted in his raid by the architect of the original house when it was built eleven years ago, Mr. Frank Weston, of the firm of Weston & Trust [sic]. These gentlemen have shown their well-known taste in these improvements.
