On the original site of the Washington Hotel and Studebaker Buggy and Carriage House, this building was constructed in 1906 as a four-story warehouse for the Spratlen-Anderson Mercantile Co. Frank Edbrooke designed the original structure, as well as a two-story addition built in 1919. He used his characteristic paired arched windows divided by roundels, a style he also employed in the seventh story of his famed Brown Palace Hotel. The building was completed towards the end of Edbrooke's career and reveals his transition to a simpler, more sober and refined style, characteristic of post-silver crash architecture. The Spratlen Mercantile Warehouse was purchased in 1923 by the Davis Brothers Drug Company. Davis moved to Denver from Rawlings, Wyoming and purchased the firm in 1901. He died tragically in a railroad crash in 1909, but his sons and grandsons went on to build Davis Brothers into a large wholesale drug firm.
