HistoryThis building was built in 1870 by George West and Dr. James Kelly. West used the second floor for his newspaper, "The Colorado Transcript," and Kelly used the main floor for his drug store. West bought out Kelly and took over the first floor for the newspaper. The newspaper operated in this building until 1967.
