Meet Molly Brown!

Margaret Tobin “Molly” Brown was one of the legendary figures in Colorado history.  Many people know of her as a wealthy mine owner’s wife, a crusading feminist, a sponsor of children’s charities, and above all as a survivor of the Titanic disaster.  But she was also a part-time resident of Jefferson County through her summer home, Avoca, and she often visited Evergreen to enjoy life at the Troutdale cabins.

On Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 2 P.M., you can meet Molly Brown, portrayed by famed historical presenter Mary Jane Bradbury.  This program will be offered at the Timbervale Barn, 4132 S. Timbervale Dr. just up the street from Hiwan Homestead Museum. Pre-registration is required and there is a $7 fee to attend.  Molly will tell of her beloved summer home, her excursions to the old Troutdale cabins in Evergreen with her wealthy friends, and her ordeal on the Titanic.

This program is presented by Jefferson County Historical Society.  For reservations or more information, contact Hiwan Homestead Museum at 720-497-7650 or Program Coordinator Meghan McGinnes at
