La Veta Hardware

-A A +A
1911. 300 S. Main St.

One of the largest of La Veta's sandstone buildings was originally a general store. The 18-inch-thick stone walls of the two-story building are squared rubblestone on the sides but regular and coursed on the facade. Details of the metal frieze are highlighted by colorful paint under the stone corbeling.
