Active Minds Bus Tour — Immigrants: Building Denver from the Bottomlands Up
May 14, 2016
Join Active Minds for a bus tour designed to take you on a journey through Denver’s immigrant past. The Americans who crossed the prairies in search of gold and founded Denver in 1858 were not the last wave of immigrants to come in search of a better life. Successive waves of immigrants from all over the world have made significant marks on the city, giving it some of its most noted buildings and richest flavors. This tour highlights the remarkable contributions of our immigrant ancestors, some of which are so taken for granted as to be virtually invisible!
