This year we will be hosting a Home Tour and Community Open House with Curtis Park Neighbors, Inc.! The event will take place on September 13 and 14, 2014 and include a minimum of twelve homes and a variety of historic sites, as well as neighborhood walking and biking tours.
“Historic Denver is excited to be partnering on what is guaranteed to be a wonderful weekend event,” said Annie Levinsky, Executive Director of Historic Denver, Inc., “Curtis Park contains a remarkable collection of expertly-restored late nineteenth-century houses.” Attend the tour and view a wide range of housing styles from modest cottages, row homes and single story duplexes to grand Victorian mansions, Italianate, Denver Square and Queen Anne style houses.
The tour will take people on a walkable and bikeable journey through Denver’s beginnings, as Curtis Park became Denver’s first streetcar suburb with the advent of the horse-drawn streetcar system in 1871. From the late 1800s to the turn of the century, the social elite made the area home. But within the same area, more modest dwellings housed blacksmiths, bank tellers, tailors and grocers. Today Curtis Park’s tree lined streets are full of diverse residents and remarkable homes near wonderful restaurants, brewpubs and art galleries.
Tickets for the Home Tour will be $15 per person, $12 for members of Historic Denver, Inc. Click HERE to purchase tickets!
