1986. 309 Nevada Ave. (northwest corner of University St.)

Trinidad's red brick, Romanesque Revival architecture is updated in this Post-modern tourist haven, easily identifiable by its three-story observation tower with a pyramidal roof. Horizontal wings recall the demolished Santa Fe depot, which stood on this site, while the tower echoes those on the nearby five-story Schneider Brewery.
