Inscription.  Constructed in 1890-92, the Equitable building is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has long been home to many of Denver’s most prestigious law firms and financial institutions, and is generally regarded as the last great building constructed in Denver before the Silver Panic of 1893.

At the time it was built, it was the largest and most stately building in the city with nine stories, complex massing and details such as the cherubs mid-way up its facade. Its elegance and distinction continue to make it one of Denver's premiere buildings.
