Come Home, Colorado!
The magnificent Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion has entered its second century of helping to create Colorado history.
Since 1908 this engaging red brick building has stood serenely in a neighborhood once referred to as Quality Hill. In 1959, when the Boettcher Foundation gave the property to the State of Colorado, it became the official residence of the Governor’s Family.
Throughout the years many first families worked to maintain and restore the splendor of the mansion, carriage house and gardens. This stewardship served as “stepping stones” to the current and much expanded preservation efforts.
The Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund was established in 2008 with a mission to ensure the ongoing preservation and use of this Colorado treasure.
Today state citizens and visitors from around the nation and world are welcomed through the doors of Colorado’s Home to enjoy public tours and various education, civic learning, and cultural programs. Through generous public and private support, the Preservation Fund is working to ensure that this outstanding home continues to represent and celebrate the diverse peoples, places, and cultures of Colorado.
We invite you to experience this unique historical treasure; a symbol of our cherished civic heritage and our living history today.
