Historic Denver saved the Molly Brown House from demolition in 1970, and has operated it as a House Museum since then. Proudly it is one of only a handful of historic sites dedicated to Women’s History. The Museum interprets and preserves the legacy of Margaret “Molly” Tobin Brown’s life so that current and future generations may understand and appreciate the social, economic, and political aspects of Victorian life in Denver. Enjoy a tour or one of the many interesting and entertaining events offered at the museum and know that you are supporting Historic Denver’s mission and ensuring the Molly Brown House’s future.
Historic Denver hosts re:Denver Forums free and open to the public every other month. Regarding Denver is a forum series dedicated to issues surrounding Denver’s built environment, its past, present, and future. Our 2019 forums will be held in March, May, July, September, and November. Locations vary.
The forums are intended to help the community understand the forces impacting our built environment, including development pressure, design standards, the real estate market, existing neighborhood character and more.
Every year, Historic Denver hosts our Annual Dinner and Awards at the Historic Brown Palace in Downtown Denver. We honor three individuals instrumental in historic preservation in Denver, and several community preservation awards. More than 400 civic leaders, community members, and design/construction/real estate professionals attend the always sold-out event, making it the largest fundraising event for Historic Denver each year.
