The Masonry of Denver chronicles the unique masonry architecture of the City of Denver and its environs. It is an examination of historic and contemporary masonry of all types: brick, stone, cast stone, terra cotta, concrete, and everything in between. It includes the history of Denver’s masonry, where it came from, and how it was used. Our goal is to provide a unique view of Denver’s architecture, not only from a design perspective but also from a construction perspective.
