Take a walk back through history in one of Denver's oldest neighborhoods.
Realtor Richard LeBert built 828 Humboldt Street at a cost of $6,000 on property purchased by his wife, Louise. Over the years, he was a justice of the peace, county clerk and recorder, U.S. Surveyor general, and U.S. consul to Ghent, Belgium. The couple lived here nine years before selling the house to pioneer Colorado rancher William A. Braiden, a founder of the American National Cattlemen's Association.
