Dey Building

-A A +A
1892. Glasgow Ave. (Colorado 145)

This two-story commercial edifice speaks eloquently of the area's skilled stonemasons and fine stone. The sandstone front flaunts Romanesque Revival detail, with an arcaded second story, a bracketed cornice, and a pediment. Uncoursed rubblestone forms side walls, now visible with the demise of neighboring buildings. The ground-floor storefront is asymmetrically arranged with recessed entries for both levels on the left. Once the Metropole Bar occupied the first floor, which since 1939 has housed the Enterprise Cafe and Bar.
