    Join us for a fascinating and informative evening as Doris Baker discusses highlights of Patricia Werner's travel guide to thirty-seven of Colorado's historic house museums.

    Learn about well known locations like the Molly Brown House in Denver, but also about of out-of-the-way places like Jack Dempsey's Cabin in Manassa or the Hedlund House in Hugo. You'll also learn about famous Coloradans like Baby Doe and Horace Tabor, and make acquaintance of lesser known figures such as the mysterious priest who built a mansion for his mother and then disappeared for twenty years, or the Cripple Creek madam whose sister told the undertaker, “This harlot is no sister of mine.”

    Each museum in Werner's book was an actual dwelling place, is now open to the public, and represents the life of the people who lived there. The book describes the architecture and history of each house, and brings to life the inhabitants through their stories. Books will be offered for sale after the program.

    Free refreshments will be served following the program.
