Historic homes in Denver

Denver has traditionally been a city of booms and busts. Gold and silver mining, cable tv, and other industries have fueled the strong economic times.

On a glorious fall afternoon I found myself strolling through some of neighborhoods developed in late 19th and early 20th centuries. I love some of these big old Victorian homes.

Here are some photos of a few homes and their details.

When I think of Denver (and Colorado), I think of the ubiquitous red flagstone. In the old Denver neighborhoods, large slabs of red flagstone were used to form the sidewalks. Many pieces are still in great condition, amazingly.

Amongst some of the historic homes are some old apartment buildings. I love the style of this one, the lovely Casa del Rey.
