This site is an excellent source for those interested in Denver's history as well as its genealogical past. Some of the things you can find is a list of all Denver Mayors; most have a photo and/or a brief biography. And you certainly don't want to miss "Denver Characters" about sixteen of Denver's most famous citizens. Do plan to explore the whole site; it's well worth the time and effort.
