Georgetown in Clear Creek County, Colorado — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Masonic Temple, 1892
Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District
A mini-temple rises from the high cornice, a story-height above the center bay of the building. Both cornice and temple are made of deeply impressed ornate tinwork. Blocks of Silver Plume granite articulate the façade, and elaborate corbelled brickwork decorates the second-floor wall beneath the cornice.
