Denver, Colo.— “The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?” The folks at Historic Denver preservation organization certainly adhered to the wise words of Doc Brown with the creation of the Denver Story Trek. Visitors don’t travel “back to the future,” but go 150 years into Denver‘s past in this “customizable experience” by car, bus or bicycle. At historic sites around the city—including the Black American West Museum, the Byers-Evans House Museum, Four Mile Historic Park, and the Molly Brown House Museum—visitors can use their cell phones to hear the stories of people behind these places by dialing a main phone number then site code. According to Steve Turner, executive director of Historic Denver, “We wanted to give residents as well as visitors to the city a way to experience the rich history of Denver for themselves. The Trek links the various periods of Denver’s history and helps people understand the forces and personalities that shaped the city over the past 150+ years.” — Amy Frye
