Molly Brown

House Museum








As Denver’s leading community-driven voice for historic places, Historic Denver Inc. seeks to safeguard the soul of our city through education and engagement, to protect and honor Denver’s unique identity for all generations.  In light of COVID-19, many of our programs and resources have gone virtual, and check back regularly for updates on the reopening of the Molly Brown House Museum and our Walking Tours.

Upcoming Events

Join us for Victorian Horrors where you’ll be able to creep around the Molly Brown House Museum in the dark of night, listening to tales of Halloween’s gone by, and visiting with one of our ghostly authors via live-stream. This year will feel particularly special as the groups will be limited in capacity allowing you to enjoy the home and decorations feeling as though you have the place to yourself…or do you? Tickets are also available for a virtual experience if you’d prefer to visit with the spirits from the comfort of your own home.

Current Issues

Uncertainty in Larimer Square

Larimer Square was included on the National Trust's Most Endangered Places list. An advisory committee convened by Larimer Square’s ownership group in June 2018 includes Historic Denver.

Our Story, Our Work

In the 1970s, Denver’s historic structures faced demolition in alarming numbers. In true pioneer spirit, a group of citizens created Historic Denver Inc. to save one of our city’s most celebrated historic homes: the Molly Brown House Museum. This flagship example of our mission allows us to connect the past and present. With the support of our members, our work to safeguard the soul of the city continues at the Museum, through our diverse and engaging programs, technical resources, and through our advocacy for the historic places you love. 

Engage and Experience

Step into Historic Denver through our programs, events and exhibits that educate, entertain and inspire community engagement. Explore a historic neighborhood on our Walking Tours. Take a guided tour or see an exhibit at our Molly Brown House Museum. Attend a Re(garding) Denver forum to discuss current preservation topics. Volunteer for our Discover Denver survey to learn about our city’s unique buildings. Through our extensive offerings, you’ll learn the full story of our city’s past and the challenges facing its preservation today.

Saving Places

Historic Denver works with property owners, neighborhoods and partners to create preservation solutions that sustain and strengthen our communities. Take advantage of our experience and expertise to care for your historic property or launch your community preservation project.
