Designated Landmarks

George W. Allen House
703 3rd Avenue

Landmark Designation: 1978

Construction Date: 1892

Architectural Style: Victorian Eclectic

George Washington Allen was the son of Alonzo Nelson Allen and Mary Ann Harris Dickens Allen, St. Vrain Valley pioneers. As a young boy, George worked around the well-known stage stop in old Burlington operated by his mother, Mary. He took care of may chores since his father was away for long periods of time prospecting with his step-brother, W.H. Dickens. Cattleman, stage driver, freighter and livery stable owner, Allen prospered. In 1892, Allen built this impressive 2-story brick home and relocated his family from 924 2nd Avenue. The Allen's are an important family in Longmont history because of their contributions to the growth and development of the area since 1859.
