There’s a large inventory of historic homes in the Cañon City and Florence area that are beautiful, fun to look, and affordable. Some of these homes are older than 100 years and are decorated accordingly, with lace curtains, stained glass, and antique fixtures and furniture.

So many of us dream of owning a historic home, and the Royal Gorge Region is a great place to find one. However, while historic homes are packed with charm, please be aware they can also come with the following:

  • Older appliances, windows, and furnaces
  • Cracks in the walls
  • An imperfect foundation
  • A sag or squeak in the floor
  • Inoperable windows
  • Small rooms that might not fit large furniture, like a sectional

These points aside, remember that when you buy a historic home in Cañon City or Florence, you’re getting a one-of-a-kind home with unmatched architecture that’s withstood the test of time. And as a bonus, the state of Colorado will offer a tax credit for the rehabilitation of qualified historic buildings.
