Capitol Hill Senior Center– Denver

 

 

Emerson School was designed by Robert Roeschlaub and constructed in 1886.

 

In 1982, Congleton Architect was      commissioned to design accessibility    elements for the new use of the building as a Senior’s Center.  The three-story brick school was one-half level above grade.  Using existing coat rooms adjacent to the classrooms, Congleton created elevator lobbies and installed a new elevator serving all levels and an  exterior entrance.

 

Today the building houses a number of community serving agencies.  It is a Denver landmark and is listed on the National

Register of Historic Places.
