Board of Trustees & Staff


Board of Trustees

Board Members

Historic Denver is governed by an all-volunteer board of trustees who oversee the organization’s operations, staff and mission, including the operations of our flagship property, the Molly Brown House Museum. Board members are nominated annually and new terms typically begin in the late fall. The board strives to represent a variety of community interests, provides the diverse skill sets necessary for a successful nonprofit organization, and provides guidance on important preservation matters.

Historic Denver seeks new board members each year during the summer months. To express interest, please contact Andrea Malcomb at (303) 832-4092 x.15.
