Wright-Sindlinger House

-A A +A
1881. 400 W. Main St.

A rare Colorado vernacular example of the Second Empire style, the Wright-Sindlinger House has multiple dormers capped by the dentiled cornice that wraps the entire mansard roof. Stone trim distinguishes arched windows on the first floor, and the dormers have unique teardrop-patterned windows. Attorney William D. Wright built the house, which was later acquired by lumberyard owner D. C. Sindlinger. After stints as a rooming house and a restaurant, it has been restored as a private residence. A similar Second Empire home, now the Centennial Manor Apartments, is at 508 West Main Street.
