Inscription.  Charles Boettcher (1852-1948) was a German immigrant who played several key roles in the state’s economic development. He introduced the sugar beet industry to Colorado and established the Great Western Sugar Company.

While building sugar beet refineries, Boettcher was often delayed by the poor availability of cement. He bought a cement plant in Portland, Colorado, created a new company, and built its headquarters, the Ideal Cement Building at 17th and Champa.
