- Will Arnett, an ostentatious gold prospector from the east, built this shining example of Gothic architecture in 1877. The ornate cast iron fence alone cost Arnett USD2000 to ship from Pennsylvania. At the time, the posh home and extravagant fence cost more than three times as much as the average home did in Boulder. During the early 1990s Historic Boulder purchased the estate. It is open to the public year round, and tours during the summer are offered. A gift shop is also on-site.
