TAKE ACTION FOR LARIMER SQUARE

Historic Denver

In the 1970s, Denver’s historic structures faced demolition in epic numbers. In true pioneer spirit, a group of citizens created Historic Denver Inc. in time to save one of our city’s most celebrated historic homes – the Molly Brown House. Since then Historic Denver has been the leading voice for local preservation.  We work with property owners, neighborhoods and communities to safeguard the places that make our city unique.

We’re the organization for people who love Denver.
