The One Past 5 at the Daniels and Fisher Tower was a great success where attendees enjoyed mixing and mingling while taking in the spectacular views from one of Denver’s most important historic landmarks. Built in 1911, the Daniels & Fisher Tower has survived for more than 100 years thanks to the passion and persistence of its caretakers and the community at large.
Thanks again to our generous event sponsors- Holly Kylberg of Clock Tower Events for hosting and Ambria for providing food and the great after-party location. Additional thanks to Strange Brewing Company, Argonaut, Colorado Athletic Club, Cascadian Farm, Oogave, Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Arts, Al’s Barber Shop, and Justin’s Nut Butter.
The Olinger Mortuary was once the temporary resting place for generations of Denverites as they passed from this world to the next. Set on the slope of a hill looking down over Denver, the Olinger Building, at the corner of 16th & Boulder, and later the iconic Olinger sign, once defined the Highlands Neighborhood. When founded, Highlands was actually its own city, built up and away from the dirt and debauchery of downtown. In 2007 a full resurrection of the property was completed when local developers transformed the former mortuary into a hotbed of resturant and business activity.
The Denver Press Club (1330 Glenarm)- place of history and mystery - was the scene of Historic Denver & the National Trust for Historic Preservation's latest One Past 5 happy hour. The city's most colorful characters have sipped & noshed & networked at this elusive place for nearly a century, and on November 5th, Denver's young preservationists joined them in swanky droves.
