See the Denver Woman’s Press Club during Doors Open Denver

by

Peek inside the historic haunt of Denver’s greatest women writers. Members and guests have included Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Mary Coyle Chase, Barbara Kingsolver and Annie Proulx.

George Elbert Burr, an artist famous for his etchings of Colorado scenery, built the charming English cottage as his home and studio in 1906. The Denver Woman’s Press Club purchased it in 1924. The clubhouse stands out in with its dark red brick walls and pitched roof. The interior features rich wood paneled walls, and an expansive studio area with the artist’s skylights on the north roof. It has a small, open staircase leads to a balcony overlooking the two-story studio.

Ah, if these walls could talk! Members will be happy to guide visitors and share a few of the Club’s secrets.
