On Monday, April 8 the Denver City Council unanimously voted to designate the Margaret Long House!
The home at 2070 Colorado Boulevard was originally owned and constructed by Dr. Margaret Long, a prominent figure in Denver’s medical and literary history. The home, built in 1908, represents the Dutch Colonial Revival Style with its steep gambrel roof, oval windows in the gable ends, and details such as the rectangular double-hung windows.
Discover Denver is an ambitious and innovative approach to historic resource survey, conducted by Historic Denver, Inc. in partnership with the City and County of Denver. Discover Denver’s mission is threefold: identify the places that matter to Denver’s history (Know It), communicate the value of historic resources (Love It) and nurture a culture of reinvestment.

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. Now more than four decades into our journey, it is our goal to be a city that respects its past as it plans for the future.
Denver Story Trek is an interactive, self-guided exploration through Denver.
