Walking around town or looking through photographs, you will notice that Colorado has a fine array of historic architecture in many very different styles. There are numerous resources for identifying a building style, but one such guide that uses examples of Colorado's historic architecture is the Colorado Historical Society's "A Guide to Colorado's Historic Architecture and Engineering," which can be found online or checked out in hard copy form from the State Publications Library. The guide can be used to identify styles of houses, public buildings, and commercial buildings, by recognizing exterior elements characteristic of the style.
Examples of famous Denver buildings and their architectural styles:
The Colorado State Capitol - Classical Revival
The Molly Brown House - Queen Anne
The Byers-Evans House - Italianate
The Equitable Building - Renaissance Revival
