Discover These Historical Sites in Denver

Molly Brown House

One of the most popular historical sites in Denver is the Molly Brown House, just five minutes from our inn. This structure was built in the late 19th century and features stunning architecture. Not to mention, it was also the home of historical figure and philanthropist, Molly Brown.

Margaret “Molly” Brown was born into a poor, working-class family and began working in a factory at only 13 years old. Soon, she would rally people together for charity and community efforts. Shockingly, she also survived a ride on the Titanic and helped other passengers, earning her the nickname of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” Today, you can explore the museum in her former house, offering insight into her life and contemporary culture. Purchase your tickets and be one of the 50,000 people who tour the building each year!

Union Station

The main transportation center for the Mile High City is also one of its most historic sites. Built in 1881, the Union Station has been through fire damage, rebuilding, and restoration efforts to be what it is today. You will notice the impressive nature of the building from outside, but the views from inside are truly incredible. Tourists from all over visit to view the Romanesque Revival style and the design of this stone-work creation. While here, be sure to check out the great local restaurants and shops inside!

Castle Marne

Did you know that our bed and breakfast is a locally and nationally designated Historic Landmark building? William Lang, one of the most influential architectural designers of the time, built our castle-like mansion in 1889. Lang’s structures totaled over 300 in Denver, yet less than 100 are still here today. He even built the Molly Brown House!

Castle Marne features 22-inch thick walls of shimmering lava stone in a style known as Richardsonian Romanesque. It has served as home to many famous and influential owners over the years, and underwent significant restoration and preservation efforts. Look for us in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver, just east of downtown!
