Eugene Field House


Did you know that Margaret Brown was one of Denver's early preservationists? In 1927 she worked to preserve the home of Denver poet, Eugene Field, from its threatened location near the Denver Mint on Colfax Avenue to Washington Park. The home served as a library branch for 40 years. Today it is used by the park, and a nearby statue of Wynken, Blynken and Nod commemorates one of Field's most famous poems.
