522 PRATT ST / Mellinger House – Built 1914
This craftsman style home was built for James and Ida Mellinger. James came to Longmont in the early 1900s, following service in the Spanish American War. As a young man Mellinger had traveled extensively, spending considerable time in Africa and in Mexico. He acquired a large collection of Indian artifacts, which he displayed in his home. The collection was recognized as one of the largest and most authentic collections of its kind in this part of the country. Be sure to peek at the carriage house that current owners Matt and Heather Brandt share with their neighbor.
