Significance: The building is significant as a community center for the immigrant community of Globeville, a residential neighborhood with broad ethnic diversity. It provided social services to immigrant families and helped them adapt to American customs. It also offered opportunities for education, recreation, and social activities. The construction of the building is associated with two prominent Denver businessmen, William P. McPhee and Frederic R. Ross, and with the Denver Real Estate Exchange, an organization of professional real estate brokers.
