Coors Building

-A A +A
1906, Perre O. Unger and William A. Wortham, builders. 1120 Washington Ave.

This two-and-one-half-story, mansard-roofed commercial emporium in pressed red brick is one of the city's best-preserved and least altered. Adolph Coors built it as a bottling plant and saloon. It was renovated in 1992 as part of the Silverheels Restaurant, which also occupies the adjacent Territorial Capitol building.
