I got a chance to visit the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver

Architect William A. Lang was a great architect who lived in the 1880s. He was a Denver resident responsible for the Molly Brown House, a Victorian-era work of art. William built the house to showcase a few styles popular during that period, and I’m sure he meant for people to admire the place for a long time. The house back then belonged to Isaac and Mary Large, who later had to sell the house after suffering financially later on. The next owner of this magnificent place was James Joseph Brown, who bought it from the Large family. The title for the house was eventually transferred to JJ’s wife Margaret when he suffered from poor health. Margaret and her family were frequent travelers and rented out the house for some time. Even the governor of Colorado stayed there in 1902 before it was turned into a boarding house in 1926. When Margaret passed away in 1932, the house exchanged ownership and became a rooming house for men. It was never well taken care of until 1970, when restoration began thanks to the Historic Denver Inc. This group of Denver residents came together to raise funds and turned the house into a museum. All this I learned during my visit to this amazing work of art. The house is something you have to visit to believe and speaks volumes about the different eras in Denver. My visit was during the hot Denver summer, but I was lucky there was good air conditioning in the museum and many other places I visited during my vacation. The house was nestled in the Capitol Hill District, and there’s a guided tour for all visitors.
