About Montclair Recreation Center | Montclair Community Center | Molkerei

Location:

Located in Denver at 729 Ulster Way.

History:

The Montclair Community Center was originally a tuberculosis clinic known as Molkerei (which means "milkhouse") that was converted into an insane asylum before assuming it's current status as community center.

The Molkerei was created by Walter Von Richthofen in 1898 in Montclair, Colorado to care for tuberculosis patients. Patients admitted to the Molkerei were promised to be cured by drinking the fresh milk, inhaling the barnyard effluvium, and lying in the sun, thus the name "Molkerei", which emphasizes the importance of milk and dairy-type activities as the "promised cure" for tuberculosis.

Walter Von Richthofen wrote a book on raising cattle in Colorado, although he was never successful at it himself. He obviously held milk and dairy in fairly high regard as he believed it could effect a cure from tuberculosis.

There are rumors that tunnels once existed that connected the nearby Barron Von Richthofen castle to what used to be the Molkerei.

Haunting:
