Many include basements and guest cottages originally built for servants’ quarters in the rear.
The 640 acres in Mistletoe Heights were considered rural when Harvie C. Lawrie of Colorado, owner of the land in 1890, laid out the streets by “setting a two and one-half inch oak wagon spoke stake at the corner tree thereof,” according to plat records.
