Manders Building

-A A +A
1891. 703 Main St. (northwest corner of San Juan Ave.)

Rough-faced rhyolite from quarries at Del Norte (Rio Grande County) distinguishes this two-story commercial building with a corner entrance. Paired second-story windows under a bracketed metal cornice have single-light transoms and shallow round arches. Like the Masonic temple catercorner, it is scarred by remodeled storefronts.
