The date is set! The much anticipated tours of the historic Marigreen Pines Estate in Cascade, CO will be held on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17, 2022. The tours of the estate, currently the home of the Holy Cross Novitiate, are hosted by the Ute Pass Historical Society & Pikes Peak Museum.
Marigreen Pines was the home of the Thomas Cusack family from 1895 until 1978. The tour includes their original home, Ellinor Cottage, as well as the elaborate Marigreen Pines mansion, built in 1923. Anne Cusack Johnson donated the estate to the Order of Holy Cross in 1978.
At that time, Mrs. Johnson, a founding member of the Ute Pass Historical Society, stipulated that the mansion and grounds should be open for tours one weekend every three years for the benefit of the Ute Pass Historical Society. This tour has been rescheduled from the 2021 date. The tour is the biggest fundraiser for the non-profit group.
