Denver to mark National Preservation Month

National Preservation Month is back, and once again Denver Landmark Preservation is inviting all of Denver to celebrate our city's unique history, architecture and geography as well as the preservation efforts that help keep them all a vital part of our landscape. 

#ThisPlaceMattersDenver

Throughout the month of May, residents are invited to share what places matter to them by taking pictures of their favorite historic places and buildings in Denver and share them online, using the materials linked below and the hashtag #ThisPlaceMattersDenver. The pictures can be of official local landmarks or of non-designated places that mean something to individuals or the community.
