McDearmon House

Address: 7180 Oak St., Arvada, 80004

McDearmon Home was built by Rodney Curtis, an enterprising businessman in Denver, who was the first and long-time president of the Denver Tramway Co. It is for him that Curtis Street in Denver is named. Curtis built this large home for his daughter, Katherine C. McDearmon in 1910. The home was located near the Leyden Tramway tracks at Ralston Station. Captain and Mrs. Mark Rhoads purchased this home (1937-1963) and named it Strolling Acres. The grounds changed considerably in 1982 when it was purchased for a church and school. The house, except for repainting outside, has been kept relatively the same.
