Newman Block
801-813 Main Avenue

Construction began in 1891 on this three-story sandstone commercial building, which is the only expression of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture in Durango. The building is associated with Charles Newman, an important businessman and politician in southwestern Colorado, and it has played an important role in the commercial development of the region.
