Providence House (Sayre's Alhambra)

Sayre's Alhambra
1892. 801 Logan St. (northwest corner of E. 8th Ave.)

Hal Sayre, a mining engineer who made his fortune in the Central City gold rush, built this twenty-five-room beige brick house with ogee-arched transom cutouts supposedly inspired by the Spanish Alhambra. Unrestored and little altered, it is now one of the more dignified shelters for Denver's homeless.
