|Every block of Capitol Hill offers a different style and character of architecture. Some of the best examples of “The Denver Style” mansion, the “Denver Square” and Victorian homes, along with modern high-rise condominiums and office conversions can be found here. Capitol Hill has a home style for all.|
|428 East 11th Avenue
The Croke Patterson Mansion
Don’t miss the Croke Patterson mansion on the corner of 11th and Emerson. Like many of the mansions on the hill, they say it’s haunted and there is often a tour here each year so that you can hear the story of the ghost who is still believed to occupy the premises.
|500 East 8th Avenue
Built by Harry Manning in 1921 for the Malo family,
this is one of Denver’s best examples of Spanish Colonial Revival. Elaborate cast-concrete details on the three arches surround the recessed porch and are adorned by wrought iron balconettes. The exterior features hand painted ceramic tiles under the roof eaves.
|450 East 9th Avenue
The Weckbaugh Mansion
This formal, French style townhouse was built by John Kernan Mullen for his daughter, Ella Mullen Weckbaugh in 1908. The steep-hipped roof and arched side dormers are manifestations of the Beaux Arts style.
The Molly Brown House
Denver’s well known landmark is a fine example of the Queen Anne Style of Architecture.
|1121 Clarkson Street
One of the first Denver Squares built in 1896 by Calvin T. Fleming for himself. The Flemings were a partnership of four brothers who started their business as carpenters in the Baker neighborhood. They developed many of the more common Foursquare houses as speculation houses, probably by following a pattern book.
1208 Logan St.
Only wood-frame dwelling in the area; built by Harry P. Baker in 1886.
|CORONA SCHOOL/DORA MOORE SCHOOL
846 Corona St., (Quality Hill)
Romanesque Revival school designed by leading institutional architect Robert S. Roeschlaub in 1889; restored in 1993 by Stanley Pouw Associates. First locally landmarked school. Symmetrical composition, generous exterior detail and interior court. Considered Roeschlaub’s most beautiful school building.
13 Avenue at Broadway
Civic Center, with its border of city, state, federal and commercial office buildings, is the core legacy of Denver’s City Beautiful era championed by Mayor Robert W. Speer in the early 1900s. The grand plan for this city center was meant to turn dusty, drab, unplanned Denver into “Paris on the Platte.”
