1917 was a big year for Lookout Mountain. Three years after Denver Mountain parks was established, attracting more tourists into the foothills, Charles Boettcher commissioned the construction of a summer home, now the Boettcher Mansion.
“Coming up on 2017 we’ve been excited for quite some time,” said Cynthia Shaw, director of the mansion. “We just really want to show off this amazing estate and also publicize the fact that we’ve been able to turn a 100-year-old building into a modern-day special events venue.”
The 100th anniversary will be celebrated later this year with a public party with activities throughout the mansion and property.
A nearby neighbor is also hitting a centennial landmark this year: Buffalo Bill’s Museum and Grave will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of its namesake and his famous funeral procession up the mountain with events throughout the year.
