Colorado history found beneath the construction excavation

Our construction crew ran into some impressive remnants of Colorado history last week. As they worked on grading for our extended parking lot, they uncovered pieces of brick and the foundation of the former Zang Brewing Company stables (later turned into a dinette). Since the Zang Brewing Company was established in the late 1800s, stables were needed to keep the horses that transported the beer throughout Denver. This was a time before automobiles were widely used, after all!
