A House Filled with Historic Original Contents

Viele der im historischen McCarty-Fickel-Haus ausgestellten Gegenstände stammen aus dem Jahr 1916, als Dr. und Mrs. McCarty das Haus für $10.000 bauten. Zu den Highlights des Hauses zählen Möbel aus Denver-Kaufhäusern, darunter der Firma Daniels & Fisher.

The McCarty family gathered together to eat evening meals in the home’s elegant dining room that featured a handsome oak sideboard. “Hired girl” Miss Fannie Palmer generally joined them for dinner.

A doctor’s cabinet used by Dr. Helen McCarty has been returned to the room where she examined patients. The shipping crate in which the cabinet was originally packed was discovered in the home’s basement.

Family photos and souvenirs adorn a bookcase filled with books used by members of the McCarty family. The bookcase is located on a second floor landing that was also used as a study by “Doctor Helen” while she practiced medicine from an office in the home during the 1930s and ‘40s.

A sewing machine used by Mrs. Jennie McCarty is one of many original items in the home that was associated with the family’s domestic life.
