Acme Building

-A A +A
1890. 722–724 Main St.

Four wooden bay windows dominate the Acme Building's upper story, above transomed display windows and recessed entrances divided by cast iron pillars made by the Hassell Iron Works in Colorado Springs. The main facade of this brick building is clad in rough-faced red sandstone. Tenants have ranged from a grocery to a mortuary, from a bicycle shop to a dance studio.
