“Doors Open Denver - Urban Adventure - Visit and Learn about Historic Denver's Landmarks”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

For the past nine years, Historic Denver, Arts Venues Denver and AIA Denver have presented over 80 landmark buildings and sites to visit for FREE! The event is held for 2 days - DoorsOpenDenver.org. This year the event was held April 13 and April 14, 2013. Tour these buildings - many of which are restored. Explore downtown Denver, the Capitol Hill neighborhood and other locations farther afield. Each site is manned by volunteers to provide you with information on the particular site - a friend and I started at ten and finished at four and saw 16 sites ranging from the Governor's Mansion, the Paramount Theater with its dual Wurlitzer organs (1929), the Cathedral Basilica with its incredible stained glass windows and the Trinity United Methodist Church, the first church in Denver - incredible organ there with over 4000 pipes, the Denver Press Woman's Club (Burr House - 1924) a meeting place for writers and media, Emerson School (1885 -oldest remaining Roeschlaub-designed school in CO. Other offerings include expert tours including photo ops, bike tours, special talks, free tour of the Molly Brown House - tickets are free but must be obtained for the expert tours. Doors Open Denver is an enjoyable way to have an urban adventure and learn more about Colorado's history - the Centennial State! Highly recommended for art, architecture and history buffs! Families are welcome too! New sites are added each year so a repeat visit would be fun too. Restaurants can be found along the 16th St. Mall in downtown Denver. On street parking and lot parking (fee). Wear comfortable clothes and shoes if you want to see a lot of sites!
