The Mansion is full of history

John Springer and his first wife Eliza Hughes, moved to Denver in 1896. Springer immersed himself in local law and politics. He also had a passion for horses, especially show horses. 

In 1897 he purchased several small ranches south of Denver including the Rotherwood farm. He then consolidated the properties into his 12,000-acre Springer Cross Country Horse and Cattle Ranch, upon which he raised rare German Oldenburg coach stallions.

John conducted an extensive remolding of the small Rotherwood farmhouse by adding a large living room and turret which gave the home a castle-like appearance as shown in the photo above.
