Jobs and Internships
Historic Denver, Inc. was founded in 1970 to preserve and protect Denver’s important historic buildings and sites. The primary catalyst for the group’s original efforts, led by Ann Love (the wife of former Colorado Governor John Love), was the purchase of the historic Denver residence of “Molly” (Margaret Tobin) Brown in order to save it from demolition and preserve the structure for future generations of Denver’s citizens. The Molly Brown House continues to be owned and operated by Historic Denver today.
