More Information on Curtis Park:

  • Denver Public Library’s website includes a neighborhood history guide on  Curtis Park.  It also includes a link to resources on the neighborhood’s history available at the library.

  • Curtis-Champa National Register Historic District Nomination.  This 1975 nomination form includes useful information on the history of Curtis Park.  In 1983, a subsequent nomination expanded the district’s boundaries.  The National Register District is an honorary designation which does not convey restrictions on individual property owners.  The boundaries of the National Register District are different from the locally designated Curtis Park Historic District. The boundaries of the locally-designated district are found here

Denver Landmark Preservation:

This is the division within the City and County of Denver that regulates permits within the locally designated Curtis Park Historic District.  

Other Denver Resources:

  • Denver has a very helpful website that provides information on what work inside and outside of your home requires building permits, and that explains the permitting process by project type (bathroom remodel, fences, roofing, etc.)

  • If you would like to know more about the history of your home, the Denver Building History Tutorial is a great place to start.

  • You can also pay a visit to the Western History and Genealogy Department at the Denver Public Library-Central Library, 1200 Broadway where the librarians can direct you to resources to help you research the history of your home.   

  • Historic Denver, Inc. is a non-profit organization that supports historic preservation in Denver, with a Resources webpage for building owners.  This website includes videos on historic preservation tax credits, window restoration and weatherization, brick mortar and wood trim restoration and energy efficiency for old homes.  Members can obtain access to the organization’s contractor resource list which is updated regularly. The organization is also a good resource for information on historic preservation resources and grants.
