04 Apr Landmark Lectures – Lost Mansions of Denver
Monday, Nov. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m.
The streets of early Denver were lined with beautifully ornate mansions thanks to the city’s rapid growth, mining and industrial fortunes, and desire for respectability. Over time, as the city evolved, many of these architectural gems were lost. Join Architectural Historian Amy Zimmer, author of Denver’s Historic Homes and Lost Denver, for a journey back in time to experience Denver’s grandest homes that now are only a memory.
Zimmer is a writer, architectural historian and communications associate for Tryba Architects, based in the historic Fisher Mansion in Denver’s Capitol Hill. She is the author of several books on local architecture including Lost Denver; Denver’s Historic Homes; and Showtime: Denver’s Performing Arts, Convention Centers and Theatre District (with Thomas J. Noel). She served seven years on the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission and is the owner of a 1909-vintage home in Denver’s historic Park Hill neighborhood.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with self-guided tours available; presentation begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $20 (includes appetizers)
A cash bar will be available with wine, beer and a specialty cocktail.
