Thanks so much for joining us on our tour around Arvada! We'll end this week with a view from Hackberry Hill, named for an old hackberry tree found growing there in the early 1800s. Settlers first built their road around the tree to preserve it. In the 1930s, as the road was set to be re-developed and the tree removed, mysterious people took it in the middle of the night. Today it's offers a beautiful skyline view from 72nd and Wadsworth. #9neighborhoods #Local #Arvada #History #ExploreColorado

But, this wouldn’t be a historic tour without a ghost story. The Equitable Building is said to be haunted, most likely by a janitor who died in the building in 1902. #DOD2016 #DoorsOpen #ghost #haunted #spooky
One of the most distinct features on the interior of the building is the Equitable Life Assurance Company’s “E”. The decorative motif can be found almost everywhere you look in the building: in fact even the building’s footprint is two back-to-back “E”s. #DOD201 #doorsopen #history #logo #interiordesign #branding
At 730 17th Street in Denver, the Equitable Building stands out as an architectural marvel. “Denver’s grand old office building” is one of those being featured during Doors Open Denver, and our partners at the @denbizjournal got an early tour as a preview of this weekend’s event! #DOD2016 #history #architecture #office #design #doorsopen

An ode to its agricultural history, this silo from the early 1900s, sits today next to a Village Inn at 90th and Wadsworth. It was once part of the Wick Hill family farm. You can see that old farm in historic photos from the Arvada Historical Society in our bio link. #History #Arvada #9neighborhoods #Colorado #Local
Did you know the city of Arvada, home today to about 114,000, was once known as the Celery Capital of the World? It's true! The celery was even rumored to be served at prestigious White House dinners. Shown here, Rocco Lotito, Sr., and his son, Vincent, winning the Pascal Celery Harvest Festival, 1942. The link in our bio has way more history and info on the city and its famous crops. Follow along as we share photos of past and present! #9neighborhoods #Colorado #Local #Arvada #History
Other than the Equitable company, the building also housed legal offices (including that of Mary Lathrop, the first woman admitted to the Bar in the US), the governor’s offices, the First National Bank of Denver and the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. #DOD2016 #DoorsOpen #law #office
The stone and brick building was designed in a classic Italianate or Renaissance Revival style seen in the symmetry and architectural detail throughout the building. #DOD2016 #DoorsOpen #history #architecture #Renaissance
Built between 1908 and 1909 the National Western Stock Show stadium arena may soon become a historic landmark. The owners have applied for the designation and are awaiting approval by the Landmark Preservation Commission and Denver City Council. The arena was an entertainment venue for the stock show until 1952 when the Denver Coliseum opened. Although the area is partially enclosed by the 1991 Stadium Hall, it is one of the city's few examples of monumental Neoclassical style architecture outside of downtown. Two other locations: the 200 block of S. Lincoln St and the Emily Griffith Opportunity School are also seeking historic designation. We have more information on them, and other historic landmarks in our city, at the link in our bio. (Photo: History Colorado) #history #architecture #historic #NWSS #landmark
