1892, Meredith and Mau. 101 S. Union Blvd. to Printers Pkwy. between Pikes Peak Ave. and Parkside Dr.

This Chateau Style castle has rough red sandstone walls with white rhyolite trim accenting corner towers, dormers, and parapets. A wing (1917) and a sanatarium (1932, D. Y. Murphy and Bros.) are among various additions. The tower clock is stopped at eight o'clock, commemorating the union victory of an eight-hour work day. Set amid expansive landscaped grounds, this edifice embodies the dream of comfortable, dignified retirement for union members.
