Guest: Annie Levinsky, Executive Director of Historic Denver Historic Denver was founded 50 years ago in an effort to purchase the Molly Brown House.  Historic Denver has worked on many other projects over the years.  Historic Denver was able to lead the effort to save the lower downtown historic district.  Ninth Street Historic Park was one of their first big projects that not many people know about.  Historic Denver helped save the Paramount Theater; they sunk everything they had into purchasing the theater and placed a protection on the building to make sure it would not be demolished.  They then created a non-profit to operate it until they sold it to Kroenke Sports Entertainment.  They have worked with many local communities to help preserve that area.       www.historicdenver.org
