About Molly Brown House

Location:

Located at 1340 Pennsylvania St. in Denver, Colorado.

History:

In 1912, Molly Brown, a Denver philanthropist booked passage on the Titanic in order to get back home from her travels to care for her ill son.

When the Titanic began to sink, Margaret Brown was hustled onto Lifeboat #6. Though equipped to hold 65 passengers, sadly, only 21 women, 2 men, and a 12 year old boy were placed on board. Lifeboat #6 was discovered by the Carpathia at 4:30 in the morning and passengers in Lifeboat #6 were pulled aboard one at a time.

A variety of wealthy families rented the Molly Brown house while Margaret Brown was traveling abroad. The house served as the Governor's mansion for a period of time in the early 1900's.

Margaret Brown owned the Molly Brown house until her death in 1932. During the Great Depression, the neighborhood surrounding the Molly Brown House fell into decline and Margaret Brown was forced to turn it into a boarding house and hire a housekeeper to supervise the property.

After Margaret's death, the house was used as a boarding house for men and as a home for wayward girls.

Currently, the Molly Brown House is open to the public as a tourist attraction. It has been restored to its original condition.

Haunting:

Paranormal investigations have revealed cold spots in the historic Molly Brown House.

Visitors to the house (non-investigators) have also reported personal experiences such as the smell of tobacco smoke, doors that open and close "on their own" and apparitions.
