Property values in historic districts: a good investment?

WEST HIGHLAND — Do property values rise at a greater rate in historic districts than in non-designated areas? That depends on your situation and your point of view. “I bought a house in the Baker Historic District (long before it was deemed historic) and the historic designation was a blessing, not a curse,” says Maify […]

Historic Lumber Baron Inn to Host Old-Fashioned Holiday Festival

HIGHLAND — One of the oldest mansions in Denver has new owners and a new attitude. The Lumber Baron Inn, known for its rich history and elegant Victorian architecture, is opening its doors to the community on Sunday, December 18th, from 1pm to 5pm, to bring community together in the spirit of kindness. While there is no admission required to enjoy the festivities, the Lumber Baron is collecting donations for Almost Home, an organization that helps Coloradans with emergency shelter.

For their inaugural year, The Lumber Baron Inn is pulling out all the stops, offering free Santa visits, a petting zoo, a backyard camp fire with marshmallows and s’mores, a station for composing letters to Santa, live holiday music, local artisan booths, and a cash-bar with special holiday libations for purchase, all tucked within a delightfully decorated venue. It just feels like Christmas.

When asked why she is not charging an admission for this event, Lumber Baron Owner and Baroness, Elaine Bryant, said “I cannot bear the idea that any child would be denied participation. I want everyone to be included. I don’t want anyone to be turned away because they cannot pay” And so it is. An event

to support the community in more ways than one was born. Instead of paying to attend this event, Elaine asks that attendees bring an unused item to support Almost Home, a local shelter than supports families in need of emergency shelter. The unused items that would be most helpful include: gift cards for grocery stores and gas stations, winter coats and outerwear.

Guests are asked to RSVP through the Facebook event page if they attend to join the fun: https://www.facebook.com/events/1199121593516246

The Lumber Baron Inn is a Victorian Bed & Breakfast and full service event venue offering five elegant guest suites, a grand ballroom, rose gardens and Scottish fare. Circa 1890, the old Victorian delivers charm, function, and enchantment to any special occasion.

Tribune shines light on Standing Rock’s historic movement

Paulette Shalhoub

I am old enough to have witnessed the small beginnings of both the feminist and civil-rights movements. Though my physical appearance reflects my Scotch-Irish ancestry, I am also Native American (Cherokee and Seminole, as nearly as I can figure out from research and family stories).  Both the land and the culture of my ancestors on my mother’s side were stolen.  We will not allow the theft of our water and the desecration of our sacred sites. 

I predict that the protest at Standing Rock will burgeon into a movement every bit as historic and large as those that were fought for the civil rights of women and minorities.  Thanks to reporters like Basha Cohen and the North Denver Tribune who are presenting information that the mainstream media ignores.

Abuse Of Denver Landmark Historic Certification

As landscape architect Saco Rienk DeBoer (DeBoer SR) work can be experienced in a number of city parks and numerous private gardens throughout the city and West. As a planner, who co-wrote the zoning code for the first time in Denver, designed many of his ways, and led to the development of the mountain parks. The people of Denver are fortunate to have the opportunity to visit many parks (including botanical gardens), where you can discover the work of SR DeBoer. These parks include, but are not limited to, the Denver Botanic Gardens, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, City Park, Washington Park and sunken gardens.

Therefore, the family believes that this should be enough for the people of Denver, and that private ownership of the family must participate through malicious use of the designation of the SR DeBoer Historic simply because there was so much. For that reason alone, the family wonders why the city of Denver wants to help “neighbors” essentially a “taking” of the past legacy SR DeBoer left his family? SR DeBoer make many parks helped design to beautify the city does not?

It took 33 years since his disappearance. Meanwhile, the “neighbors” of the property should not talk about your feelings with family s. SR DeBoer “In fact, the daughter of SR DeBoer itself has been overwhelmed by the heavy amount of maintaining the property and in recent years has sold pieces of the people trying to” take “the rest of the ownership of the family. There was until (Elizabeth Wright) of his daughter in July 2005 and progress towards the sale of goods for their other children, not the “neighbors” tried to describe this historic property. Therefore, that act as called “hero” for his legacy in his own family is clearly an obvious attempt to use their memory and minimize the history of his own family on the property (86 years) for obvious selfish gains.

Lafon and neighbors who signed the petition for historic designation have no direct experience with SR DeBoer DeBoer’s family does. SR DeBoer family personally experienced what happened in the property and ultimately will know their property. SR DeBoer died in 1974 and none in the area and knew him personally.

Currently, the Denver Historical Society, and the neighboring properties in East Iliff Avenue Denver, looking to appoint an historic district, which includes a number of surrounding property. Leigh and Mark Lafon came to the historic designation of the request without the consent or knowledge of the SR DeBoer family, and received the signatures of the members of the neighborhood.

Leigh Lafon specifically wrote a letter to the Landmark Commission asking that the process is “fast” and must be kept secret from the family of SR DeBoer. The city of Denver employees according to their application on the basis of their concern for the alleged impending demolition of the buildings on the property. There has never been a demolition permit from one of the three buildings on the property and the family of SR DeBoer SR DeBoer was never notified of the initial hearing with the reference point of the Commission. Employees of Landmark Preservation Commission could have easily found that no demolition permit obtained, but chose not to. There is no doubt that the false accusation of demolition Lafon artificial sense of power alarm raised in the neighborhood.

The first (of 4 in all tests due to corrections made on the basis of refutations of SR DeBoer family) request was a 45-page document that contains false statements and numerous historical errors. Leigh and Mark Lafon has had many opportunities to meet the historical commission and organizations in other cities to make their points, while the SR DeBoer family has had virtually no opportunity to do so.

Ana Novas, who lives on the farm property adjacent to SR DeBoer DeBoer and true home of RS in his life, was initially interested in selling your property with the SR DeBoer family, and even provided the name of a developer. However, later signed the petition of the neighbors later. Neighbors SR DeBoer property, including Lafon, refer to this center as their “forest”, “enclave Woody” and “his sanctuary” and have benefited from the efforts of the SR DeBoer family to retain ownership of forest. Due to financial problems and the transition from Elizabeth Wright (SR DeBoer daughter) their children were forced to put the property up for sale. Without direct knowledge and development for fear that the neighbors have chosen not to broach the subject with the family, but to look slyly historic designation of the family could not do anything with the property.
