Capitol Hill overflows in knowledge and Colorado lore. This neighborhood has a host of gorgeous buildings that date back more than one hundred years, not to mention museums and multimedia tours that will make the past come alive. First, take a trip to History Colorado Center. The Smithsonian Institution lauded the Center as the first great history museum of the modern age and is now showing exhibitions featuring Colorado’s indigenous population, a 40 by 60-foot map of the state, and a 75-year-old diorama showcasing life in 1860 Colorado. Meanwhile, the Byers-Evans House Museum will transport you back to the early 20th century and familiarize you with two old families who helped make Denver what it is today. But those aren’t the only sorts of places you can go to experience the past.
Capitol Hill is home to many gorgeous turn-of-the-century mansions that transformed into contemporary homes. Here you’ll find an array of historic condos and townhouses in styles such as Beaux Arts, French Country, Spanish, and Dutch Colonial. For example, the Patterson Historic Inn, a National Landmark, is a refined mansion yet fully modernized for modern residents and provides nine uniquely themed rooms.
