Event description

Description

Join the Denver Architectural Foundation and Lower Downtown for a 75-minute walking tour guided by Kevin Pharris, owner of Denver History Tours, through part of Denver's Lower Downtown District. Did you know that LoDo is Denver's oldest neighborhood? It is thus rich with history - some of it haunted, of course!

The streets around Union Station were once home to the heavy and unromantic equipment necessary to sustain a thriving boom town. Hardware, plumbing supplies, tractors, and more kept the city running. Though warehouses have become offices, the spirits of Denver's early industrialists haven't entirely left downtown – their ghosts remain. All you have to do is look up! Join us for a tour of Denver's hidden Ghost Signs, with history, architecture, and more to entice you. Along the way, we'll even share some of the salacious stories of the people who skulked in scandal and shadow among the warehouses. The tour will end on one of LoDo's hidden patios, complete with a Ghost Sign, libations, and good eats. Hand-painted history, don't miss it!

Please note: This tour begins in front of Union Station – please allow ample time for parking or consider taking public transit to the station.

This tour is made possible in part through support from Ubran Villages, a Denver-based boutique real estate development and property management company.
