Though more humble than the city’s grand and iconic landmarks, these historic resources have an everyday importance in our communities and our quality of life. We hope to strengthen this importance by being a source of encouragement and a technical resource for those who live in and love their historic house. Through the program, we educate homeowners about restoring and preserving their home by providing technical assistance and offering opportunities to learn more about specific restoration subjects.
Our outreach to owners of Historic Homes is funded in part by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Colorado State Historical Fund.
Historic Denver Inc. has partnered with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, State Historical Fund, cities in the Denver metro area, and graduate students in architecture from the University of Colorado to create a series of homeowner education workshops. This program also includes the creation of pattern and design idea books to provide remodeling ideas for owners of pre-and-post-war housing in pilot neighborhoods.
Our free workshops include:
All the workshops are available on-line, but if your neighborhood group or community organization is interested in scheduling a live presentation of one of these workshops (or a series of all four) please contact our offices at (303) 534-5288 ext. 5.
Historic Denver has produced a series of videos to capture the information presented in the workshops. Please click on the name of a workshop above to view the videos online!
