Chris led the tour and did a beautiful job. He told interesting stories about the people who used to live on Quality Hill. He took us by a variety of house styles and showed photos of many of the houses that have been demolished. Also, the large number of trees in the area made the tour very comfortable.
Interesting to hear about the lives and real estate ambitions of early Denver's elite. Sad to see that so many of those wonderful old mansions have gone the way of the bulldozer. Docents are quite knowledgeable.
Kevin was the most organized tour leader! Although he used his notes to enhance the tour, he definitely made the tour personable, answering the numerous questions we had.
