Virtual Tour: Eugene Groves’ Nordlund House

Tour the largest and most elaborate example of Eugene Groves’ residential work, the Nordlund House in the historic Hilltop neighborhood. Beginning in the early 1900s, architect Eugene Groves designed many buildings in Colorado, including more than a dozen on the CSU campus. After developing his own style and construction methods, Groves experimented with the use of pre-cast reinforced concrete. His goal was to facilitate the construction of a fireproof, clean and easy to maintain home that could accommodate the daily needs of a family. In the process, Groves established the Concreter Company, backed by Charles Boettcher, and received patents for his unique building techniques.
