The Fed’s Denver branch, at 1020 16th St., continues to serve several roles. Economists and researchers housed there report back to Kansas City and Washington, D.C., on the state of the economy in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico.

Businesses and banks responded by refusing to accept $5 bills in Denver. A month later, the body of one of the alleged robbers, Nick Trainor, was found riddled with bullets and frozen in the getaway vehicle at a garage at 1631 Gilpin St. No one was ever arrested for the crime.

The robbery pushed the Fed to construct its own building at 1111 17th St., but by the 1960s, that building was outdated, and in 1968 a new five-story building at 16th and Curtis streets would serve as the branch’s home.
