The range of personalities that created (and lived in) the residences showcased in Denver’s Historic Homes, a new book documenting some of the most notable and influential homes in the city, are as diverse as Denver history. Author Amy Zimmer, who also wrote Denver’s Capitol Hill Neighborhood, used historic images from public sources and canvassed private collectors for photographs of residences that reflect both the down-and-dirty Wild West culture that emerged from Colorado;'s high-country mining communities as well as the ritzy, glitzy mansions that were built by the most profitable miners in those communities. The result is a smorgasbord of the Mile High City’s most notable dwellings and neighborhoods that takes our modern Denver experience back to its very roots.
Zimmer will present a PowerPoint lecture and sign copies of Denver’s Historic Homes tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street. Call 303-436-1070 or visit tatteredcover.com for details.
