“I can’t imagine Denver without…”
Historic Denver, Inc. launched its 50 Actions for 50 Places campaign earlier this month and needs your help! In honor of our organization’s 50th anniversary we are looking for the next 50 places worthy of preservation action, and we are asking the people of Denver to help us identify these places. We would greatly appreciate it if you could share this information with your community members!
Community members can visit https://50actions.historicdenver.org/places and submit the places they can’t imagine Denver without through an on-line form and map! Perhaps it’s a favorite neon sign, a school, church, community center, the home of someone that shaped Denver, a unique block, an open space, a meaningful mural, or a small business. Historic Denver is searching for places that are relevant to Denver’s history, representative of Denver’s diverse stories, and have not already been recognized or protected. In May, Historic Denver will announce 50 places and work with community members to devise an action strategy for each one. Examples of possible action strategies could be raising awareness, storytelling, installing interpretive markers, providing technical assistance, or nominating a site for local, state, or federal designation.
