Denver's Elitch Gardens
Spinning A Century of DreamsBook - 2003
Opened in 1890 by John and Mary Elitch-just thirty short years after the bustling town of Denver was born-Elitch Gardens was always much more than just an amusement park. It was Colorado's first botanic garden, one of the first zoos west of Chicago, the oldest summer stock theater in America, Denver's first symphony orchestra, Colorado's first children's museum and activity center, a baseball park, Denver's first motion picture theater, and the home of the famous Trocadero Ballroom.
