General Note:
View of the front entrance of the Denver Turnverein (1921; George L. Bettcher, architect), also known as the German House, a German social and athletic club, at 1570 Clarkson Street in the North Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. The Spanish revival style building has a shaped parapet and a red tile roof. Concrete steps lead up to a segmentally arched entrance with double full-length casement doors and a transom light. Windows on either side of the door have iron grilles. A curved metal sign over the door reads: "German House." Attached to the top of the metal sign is a neon sign that reads: "Denver Turnverein." There is a cast concrete plaque above the signs, which depicts a scene from Greek mythology of Pan playing a pipe for a dancing woman.
