Historic Tavern Slated for Demolition 

A new development has been proposed by the Southern Land Co. for the Uptown neighborhood, which will involve the demolition of a significant historic building as well as two other historic buildings on the block. Here at Historic Denver, we think the preservation and incorporation of this 1900 building could be a great aspect of the new development, helping it to fit in with the surrounding neighborhood by preserving the historic character of 17th Street.

About Historic Denver

As one of the nation’s premier historic preservation organizations, Historic Denver, Inc. protects the historic neighborhoods that make Denver unique.  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.  Historic Denver, Inc. is the organization for people who love our city.



Denver Story Trek is an interactive, self-guided exploration through Denver.  From parks, street corners, homes and businesses, Denver is full of old places that do not just remind locals that they are home, but that tell the stories of our shared past and remind us that we are not the first people to live, work, play and visit the Mile High City.  You can follow a Featured Trek or customize your own tour and learn about the city’s historic landscapes and landmarks.  To learn more about Denver Story Trek, click here.
