This year’s offerings include stories from the likes of HG Wells and Edgar Allan Poe alongside the local spirit of Mary Coyle Chase.

The scene of this thrilling event is the Molly Brown House Museum in historic Denver. To up the spooky factor, the museum is partnering with Denver’s curio vendors, The learned lemur and Atomic folk art, to create a Victorian cabinet of curiosities! And back are our fabulous fortune tellers to read your tarot. Give them a good tip!

GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE MOLLY BROWN HOUSE MUSEUM
The Molly Brown House Museum, 1340 Pennsylvania Street, is a famous Denver landmark and the home of Margaret “Molly” Brown. Brown has been the subject of numerous books, films and stage productions and has become one of Denver’s most intriguing legends. Margaret Brown moved to Leadville, Colorado at the age of 19 in search of adventure. While in Leadville, she came to the attention of Superintendent of Mines James Joseph (JJ) Brown and they were married shortly thereafter. The couple’s ship finally arrived when the mine JJ was in charge of uncovered the largest gold seam ever found in Colorado! After the discovery of gold, Margaret and her family purchased the exquisite Victorian home at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Margaret was an amazing, high-spirited woman who became active in the women’s suffrage movement, labor reform efforts, and even survived the sinking of the Titanic! In 1970, a group of citizens incorporated as Historic Denver, Inc. and preserved the Browns’ home. It’s been a beloved Denver museum and institution for over 52 years!
