Trinidad, Colorado - A Historic Building Survey

Schneider Brewing Company Building

Map location #18.

Surely one of the most interesting and unique buildings in Trinidad is the old Schneider Brewery at 240 North Convent Street. This building which was completed in 1888 is in the Tuscan or Italian hill style of architecture. This structure was both well conceived and well executed and remains almost unchanged and undamaged after more than 80 years of use.

The Schneider Brewing Company played a very significant role in the development of Trinidad. Not only was it one of the major industries in town but the organization was also a large dealer in real estate and was involved in the construction of numerous buildings in the town. Also, for many years hot water was piped from this plant into the heating systems of several of the main buildings along Main and Commercial streets.

Following Schneider other brewing concerns utilized this plant but now it has no such usage. School district II now uses part of the building for office space.

The second photograph was taken August, 1970. 

Legal Description: Lots 15 and 16; part of Lot 14; Block 126 OTS.
