Frank E. Edbrooke (1840–1921),[1] also known as F.E. Edbrooke, was a 19th and early 20th century architect in Denver, Colorado who has been termed the "dean" of Denver architecture. Several of his surviving works are listed on the National Register of Historic Places including Brinker Collegiate Institute, built in 1880 and NRHP-listed in 1977.

His brother was nationally prominent architect Willoughby J. Edbrooke (1843–1896), who served as Supervising Architect for Federal buildings during 1891–92. Willoughby's son, Harry W.J. Edbrooke, worked with Frank.
