Discover Denver's oldest neighborhoods and the legendary women who made their marks there.

Journalist and suffragist Minnie J. Reynolds (1865-1936) formed the Denver Woman's Press Club (DWPC) in 1898 with nineteen other notable female journalists. The club reflected the growing influence of early twentieth-century newspaperwomen despite male domination of the profession. The DWPC's founders hope "to advance and encourage women in literary work, to cultivate acquaintance and friendship among women of literary tastes, to secure the benefits arising from organized effort," and most importantly, "to drive dull care away." Artist George Burr's brick cottage at 1325 Logan Street was converted to the Denver Woman's Press Club house in 1924.
