Rosemount

About Rosemount Museum

Built in 1893, this 37-room mansion was home to the John A. and Margaret Thatcher family and was named for Mrs. Thatcher's favorite flower. It remained a family residence for 75 years. Designed by noted New York architect Henry Hudson Holly and two years under construction, the mansion was completed in 1893. Nearly all furnishings, accessories, decorative arts, paintings, custom woodwork, wall and window treatments are original to the home. Guided tours begin on the half hour throughout the day, with the exception of special events and the last two weeks of the holiday season when self-guided tours are utilized.

See why Rosemount has been called "Colorado's Crown Jewel," and why it was selected for showing on the A & E cable network's nationally televised "America's Castles" and the HGTV Series "Christmas Castles"*.

Get Involved

The patrons of Rosemount Museum are the mainstay of this non-profit institution. Each year, membership donations provide support toward the preservation of one of America's finest examples of the Victorian era. The museum also benefits from the faithful service of about 40 volunteers who assist with tours, research, special events, educational programs, and provide staffing for our gift shop. We are fortunate to have the support of so many dedicated friends!

Volunteering

Rosemount is always looking for volunteers for our Docent (tour guide) programs and for other museum needs. Our volunteers have the opportunity to work in the elegant atmosphere of the Victorian era, meet new people from throughout the country and beyond, serve as a museum representative and help preserve the traditions represented by Rosemount and the Thatcher family.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please inquire by calling the museum at (719) 545-5290 or use our Get Involved form.

Weddings and Special Events

Rosemount Museum rents the grounds and east veranda for weddings and other outdoor events. The inside of the museum itself is not available for weddings or receptions. Wedding ceremonies can be conducted on the veranda or the outside grounds, and small receptions can be booked in the Carriage House. Receptions or dances are not allowed on the veranda due to liability issues.

The museum is only available May through September for weddings and other outdoor events. Weddings are booked only after January 5th of each year. Tentative dates can be held prior to the end of the year once the museum has set its calendar for the next year. Tentative dates can only be held through the approval of the Museum Director. Official dates can be held beginning January 5 with a deposit and signed contract. Fees are based on a sliding scale determined by the number of hours the property is used and the number of people the event brings to the property. The basic cost for a 2 to 3 hour event with 100 or more people is $300 for the deposit and $600 for the rental fee. Fees may vary based on the individual situation. Deposits are due when the date is booked and the rental fee is due 30 days prior to the event. The deposit is returned within one month after the event.

Photos can be taken anywhere on the outside of the grounds by those getting married on the property and those getting married somewhere else, and for family, graduates and other photo opportunities, however prior permission is required. Alarms are set on all of the museum porches when the museum is closed. These porches are off limits if the museum is closed but can be accessed if the museum is open. Certain dates or times may not be available if the museum has the property rented for a wedding or other outdoor event. PLEASE CALL AHEAD TO GET PERMISSION.

Photos can be taken inside the mansion with prior permission from the Rosemount Board of Directors and the Director. A $250 fee is required to take photos inside the mansion.
