Are there buildings in West Colfax that are special to you? Discover Denver wants to know.
What makes a building in West Colfax special? Discover Denver, a project focused on identifying historic and architecturally significant structures citywide, begins work in West Colfax in July 2019 and needs your help!
The survey gathers information about all Denver buildings using public records, neighborhood canvassing, academic research, and tips from the public. Volunteers play a significant role in Discover Denver: documenting buildings, researching building histories, and collecting stories from members of the community. Survey findings will ultimately be accessible online so that everyone can learn about Denver’s past — building by building.

- Uncovering buildings of historic and architectural significance
- Providing property owners with up-front information about buildings to inform reinvestment…
