The Ullery House

 

The Ullery House was built in 1908 for John and Mary Ullery. It is characteristic of many of the

smaller homes built in Berthoud in the early 1900s. The classic Victorian elements such as porch

columns, molding, and shingle patterns turned basic builder plans into beautiful small homes.

The building of homes in this area confirmed the viability of Berthoud as a town and defined the

southern edge of the community for many decades. The Ullery's were pioneers who came to

Colorado Territory by wagon train in 1863 from Nebraska. John Ullery had this home built when he was 77 years old. For a

short time, the couple raised mink in the backyard. Mary passed away two years after completion of the home and John

died in 1917.
