City of Golden, Downtown Landmark, Historic Preservation Board

The original building was constructed in 1870 by John H. Parsons and William H. Curry as the City Restaurant Hotel for an Italian immigrant Charles Garbarino. It originally had arched windows and doors on both floors and an ornate wood balcony used for public events and speeches. One of Golden's longest lived hotels, this became the Crawford, Poe, and Cody Hotel, but most famously as the Avenue Hotel run by Carlos Lake beginning in 1906. In 1910 it lost its balcony when an orator crashed through to the sidewalk below. In 1947, Jack Rose converted the building into a retail paint shop and replaced the original faced with yellow and decorative brown brick.
