Recap: Mansions of Capitol Hill Walking Tour
About the tour:
On November 23, 2019, DAF had a special walking tour of the mansions of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. This tour was led by architectural historian Amy Zimmer. Capitol Hill in the late 19th and early 20th centuries boasted some of the West’s finest mansions. At the time of the Capitol’s construction, wealthy Denverites decided that Capitol Hill was the place to be and the blocks surrounding the State Capitol were filled with mansions. We discoverd the mansions that survived and some that were lost on this walking tour of the area, and learned about how the surviving mansions have found new uses.
