|History||Thomas Eustice, a miner from the gold and silver regions of Colorado, came to Arvada for health reasons. He built a home for his family in 1893 at 5613 Wadsworth Blvd. The house remained in the Eustice family until 1923. Dr. Richard Russell wanted to be in a more prominent location and swapped his house at 5605 Yukon Street for Nellie (Eustice) Graves home on Wadsworth Blvd. The Russell's remained here until Dr. Russell's death in 1934. This prestigious home has changed hands many times but has been remodeled and well cared for during its 100-year existence.|
