HISTORIC DENVER INC
" Our iconic landmarks and the character of Denver’s historic neighborhoods need and deserve our support. Historic Denver’s work would not continue without support from the community that values the quality of life a well-preserved city presents. "
Historic Denver was founded in 1970 through extraordinary citizen effort to save the 1889 home of Titanic survivor, Margaret "Molly" Brown, which the organization continues to operate as the Molly Brown House Museum. The project became a catalyst for preservation throughout the city and Historic Denver has continued to lead the way, supporting projects such as the restoration of 9th Street Historic Park, the rehabilitation of the Curtis Park neighborhood, the rescue of the Paramount Theater and the significant technical assistance provided through the Sacred Landmarks and Preservation for Living Programs.
As one of the nation’s premier non-profit urban historic preservation organizations, Historic Denver, Inc. works to protect and promote Denver's historic places. Through technical assistance, grant funds and easement donations, Historic Denver invests in our community and neighborhoods, heightening awareness of our architectural heritage and educating and empowering neighborhoods to positively affect quality changes in our developing city. Almost five decades into our journey, we continue to advocate for Denver’s identity as a city that remembers and respects its past as it plans for the future.
