Stewart Block Building

City of Golden
Downtown Landmark
The Stewart Block building was completed in 1892. It served as a grocery for 52 years under a variety of owners including Caleb E. Parfet, Elvyn E. Stewart, and Leonard Vogel. The motto of the original building owners was "quick sales and small profits." The upstairs served as a meeting hall for the Knights of Pythias and later, to the chagrin of many Golden residents, the Ku Klux Klan. The mural on the south exterior was painted in the 1920s as a advertisement for Rocky Ford Cigars. The building was donated to the City of Golden in 1944 for recreational use and sold in 1961 to finance a new recreation center.
