Antique car in front of the Windsor Farm Dairy Company, what is now the Dairy Block in downtown Denver

A Historical Block

Dairy Block was once home to Windsor Dairy—a company brought to prominence by H. Brown Cannon. Mr. Cannon was born in Michigan in 1868 and moved to Colorado in 1888. He went straight to work in the dairy industry, eventually acquiring Windsor Dairy. The Dairy Block site was cemented as a state-of-the-art home for Windsor Dairy in a landmark real estate deal inked in 1920.

Windsor Dairy was known for unparalleled levels of quality, freshness and purity—sought after by Denver’s most prestigious families. With the enormous success of the dairy, H. Brown Cannon went on to have important leadership roles and influence throughout the city of Denver, serving as a county commissioner under former Mayor Speer and as the first state dairy inspector under appointment by Governor Alva Adams.
