Winner of the 1993 Hubert Humphrey Award for the book's contribution to the historical appreciation and preservation of Northwest Denver.

Now in its sixth printing, this book features a rare treasury of Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings and the people who first came to Northwest Denver. The area's pure air, great views, and clean water were great attractions. Rediscovering Northwest Denver describes the area's incorporated suburbs of the 1800s, the farms, the early amusement parks, all of which became part of Denver around the turn of the century.

Rediscovering Northwest Denver is a chatty, enjoyable read that tells of the tycoons and entrepreneurs whose fine Victorian homes still dot the area, and of the immigrants from various European cultures who clung together for comfort in the face of prejudice. The book includes maps, photographs, past and present street names, a bibliography, index, and suggested tours. Northwest Denver today is typified by traditions, beauty, and pride, all of which the author captures in this ever-popular book.


Ruth Eloise Wiberg is a well-known lecturer and author of various articles on Denver and Colorado history. An active volunteer concerned with planning and preserving Northwest Denver, she received the 1977 annual award from Historic Denver, Inc., for Rediscovering Northwest Denver.
