Explore the rich history of Denver in this guide designed to be shared by children and families.
The Brown Palace at 321 17th Street was one of Denver’s earliest skyscrapers. It was the second fireproof hotel to be built in the United States. Constructed of steel and stone, it was considered an architectural marvel. At the time of its creation, it was the finest hotel between Chicago and the Pacific Coast. The interior was outfitted with top quality materials and décor to please even the most discriminating tastes. It lies on a triangular plot of land and the hotel was designed with this in mind. The end result was a beautiful landmark on a well-traveled corner of the city.
