The original Orpheum in Denver was designed by Willis Marean and Albert J. Norton. There are four photos of it on this web page.

The firm of Marean & Norton practiced in Denver from 1895 to 1936 and left a significant legacy of buildings in Colorado, some of which are now listed on the NRHP and others of which are designated local landmarks.
