HistoryThe Ladies Relief Society formed Denver Orphans Home in 1876 in order to take care of the orphans being brought in to build railroads and work in the mines of Colorado. In 1902, the home moved to its current location at 1501 Albion Street. It is a 50-room complex, designed by prominent Denver architects Willis A Marean and Albert J Norton. The building's interior looks the same as the day it was built in 1902.
