Did you know?
In the 1970s, Denver's historic buildings faced the threat of demolition in epic numbers. Thanks to a determined group of concerned citizens, Historic Denver, Inc. was created just in time to save one of our city's most celebrated historic homes - that of the "unsinkable" Margaret Brown.
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.
Please help us preserve and promote Denver’s unique character by joining our cadre of annual supporters here.
*Check out our Senior levels! Our members over 65 years enjoy special discounts on membership dues.
**Happy Hour Passes grant free or discounted admission to one of Historic Denver’s One Past 5 Happy Hour or Molly Brown House Museum’s Young Professional Thirsty Thursday events. There are typically 6-8 of these Happy Hour events each year. Subject to availability, please RSVP at least two weeks before the event to reserve your spot by calling 303-534-5288 extension 7 for One Past 5 and 303-832-4092 extension 17 for Thirsty Thursday. PLEASE NOTE: Some special One Past 5 events are much more expensive to host than others- and in these cases, we will gladly accept Happy Hour Passes for even deeper discounts than typical member pricing! We appreciate your understanding.

Why join Historic Denver?
Your support now will set us on our way and make possible the implementation of several key, transformational efforts:
- Implementation of a proactive advocacy agenda that will include financial and technical assistance to neighborhoods and property owners seeking to protect and reuse historic places
- Creation of a reserve fund to support the Molly Brown House Museum and preservation advocacy
- Reinvestment in our key resource, the Molly Brown House, including the rehabilitation of the masonry front porch, stabilization of the north chimney, carriage house roof replacement and improvements to collections storage
- Continued leadership on the first-ever citywide survey of historic resources, Discover Denver, which includes the first pilot survey of Architects Small House Service Bureau homes
- Publication of a Spanish-language version of Discovering Denver: Brick by Brick, our 4th grade Denver history resource, so that we can better adapt to the changing demographics in our region
Each of these efforts will place the organization and our city’s historic resources on a path to a sustainable future, amplifying the preservation voice and ensuring that our legacy architecture and the local stories represented by the built environment are an essential part of our community’s growth and development.
Volunteers are the backbone of Historic Denver's work, helping us to preserve and protect places that matter to our city. Opportunities for volunteers are diverse, so we hope you can find something that works for you. For more information on specific opportunities, please visit our Volunteer page.
