Welcome to 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.


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.
