15 Apr Latino/Chicano Historic Context Study
The city of Denver is launching a study of the historic context of contributions to the city from Latino/Chicano people and culture.
Denver’s historic fabric comes from the stories of the diverse persons and groups who comprise its vibrant history. Led by Denver’s Landmark Preservation staff in partnership with the city’s I Am Denver storytelling project, this first-of-its-kind initiative in Denver will uncover and share the deep history and historic places of Denver’s Chicano and Latino communities. Through engaging public outreach and traditional historic research, this project will create a broad overview on the citywide settlement and development patterns of Latino and Chicano communities in Denver up to the 1990s.
Anyone who has valuable information to share about this important history is welcomed to participate.
