Colorado’s preservation tax credit makes preservation possible across the Denver metro area, from the Stanley Marketplace to Union Station, from Tammen Hall to the Fruitdale School, and in your neighborhood! It is now time to reauthorize the program as HB 1190 and we are again working with our partners to make sure this valuable preservation tool continues to serve our communities.

What’s Happening

Historic Denver, Inc. is Denver’s primary supporter-based preservation advocacy organization. We work with neighborhoods, City Council members, property owners and other interested parties to ensure the preservation of essential historic resources in the Denver area.


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. just in time to save one of our city’s most celebrated historic homes – that of “unsinkable” Molly Brown.  Since then Historic Denver has been the leading voice for preservation through Advocacy, Education, and Technical Assistance. We work with property owners, neighborhoods and communities to safeguard and celebrate the places that make Denver- Denver.

The organization for people who love our city.


Discover Denver is an innovative historic resource survey conducted by Historic Denver in partnership with the City & County of Denver. Historic Denver’s mission is threefold: identify the places that matter to Denver’s history (Know It), communicate the value of historic resources (Love It), and nurture a culture of reinvestment.



Walking Tours are led by passionate volunteer docents, who are carefully selected and go through a rigorous training and certification process run by Historic Denver. They are prepared to give you a knowledgeable, engaging and fun tour around Denver’s iconic neighborhoods and sites. Group Tours, Arts Week Tours, and Holiday Tour tickets are currently available.
