Tips from locals
Cool museum dedicated to telling the Black American Western experience. Short daytime hours, makes for a quick visit in a lovely historically black neighborhood.
Victorian home filled with artifacts telling the story of African-Americans in the Wild West.
Black Cowboys and Cowgirls are real. Madame C.J. Walker lived in Denver. See the history of the contributions of Denver's Black Citizens.
Small museum in an old house (belonging to Dr. Justina Ford, Denver first African-American female doctor). Off the beaten path and well worth it. You will learn a lot about African Americans in the west!
