U. S. Custom House Addition – Denver CO

Description

“The N.P. Severin Company of Chicago erected the building in 1931 under the direction of James A. Wetmore, architectural supervisor for the Treasury Department. The walls of the Italian Renaissance Revival style building are of smooth-rubbed, course cut Colorado Yule marble. The Public Works Administration financed a large 1937 addition designed by Denver architects Temple H. Buell and G. Meredith Musick. Various government agencies [are] housed in the building, but its primary tenant [is] the U.S. Custom Service.”   (www.historycolorado.org)
