A 6-bedroom home in Denver's historical Humboldt Island subdivision is listed on the market for $995,000. The subdivision was only Denver's second to receive historic landmark status--a standing that means enforced preservation of the neighborhood structures.
Inside 1045 Humboldt, intricate details narrate each room, ranging from the hand-beaded crystal chandeliers to the hand-carved wood trimmings with stained-glass throughout. Adolph Levy Mayer--creator of American Furniture Company and the Mayer Furniture Company--lived in the house with his wife during both World Wars.
Next door is the old Governor's Mansion at 1075 Humboldt Street where Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft both once addressed the nation.
