A. T. Henry Building

-A A +A
1886. 102–104 N. F St. (north corner of 1st St.)

A. T. Henry's handsome, red brick commercial block originally housed the Chaffee County Bank and other substantial businesses. Typical of Italianate commercial buildings, it has elongated, double-hung windows topped by stone arches on the second story and a bracketed metal cornice. A roof-top pediment framing a sunburst design marks the corner entry, and a secondary cornice tops transomed plate glass display windows. Even the metal roof-top finials survive on this cornerstone of the downtown district.
