Kerr House (Denver)

Denver County

The John G. and Helen Kerr House, built in 1924-1925, is a good example of the Italian Renaissance Revival style that was popular during the early 20th century.  Located on a large corner lot, the two-story brick residence reflects the extensive and artistic use of Colorado travertine marble.

Kerr House

The marble was mined from John Kerr’s marble quarry near Salida, Colorado.  The building is also an important work in the life of Denver architect Jules Jacque Benois Benedict.  The property is associated with The Architecture of Jules Jacques Benois Benedict in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
