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 the “unsinkable” Margaret (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 our city unique.
The organization for people who love Denver.
