Doors Open Denver, April 12 and 13, is a free event which invites people to explore the architecture of Denver's most interesting buildings. Participants can take special guided tours, bike to historic places, and walk through several historic neighborhoods.
CenturyLink has generously agreed to allow the Telecommunications History Group (THG) to conduct tours of the historic Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph building at 931 14th Street. This building, completed one month before the stock market crash of 1929, is rarely open to the general public. THG will have two tours each day. Each tour accommodates 20 participants.
More information can be obtained at www.DoorsOpenDenver.com.
Doors Open Denver is free, thanks to the support of the Denver Architectural Foundation, Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation (INC), and other friends and sponsors.
The headquarters for the tours this year is the remodeled white marble lobby of 1801 California Street. At the headquarters, participants can get the event guide and map, sign up for tours, and purchase a copy of Guide to Denver Architecture. Generally, buildings are open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for tours.
