Built in 1897, the Historic Molly Brown Summer House Museum and it's newly constructed sister The Denver Pavilion at the Brown's Event Center is not unique-- it's one of a kind. Designed and built as a 400 acre country estate by Denver's famous J.J. and Molly Brown, the couple dubbed it "Avoca Lodge" as it became their favorite retreat from crowded city life. Avoca is where they raised their children, and spent leisurely time during the height of their wealth and happiness. Owned and operated by the Fehlmann family for the past 87 years both buildings are set on the last existing acre with adjoining park like grounds, 3 generous decks overlook gardens wrapped with cobblestone pavers which lead guests through a private forest of trees finishing at an outdoor patio, courtyard and fire pit. Both buildings are easily accessed with plenty of well lit on site parking. The Molly Brown Summer House is available for private guest viewing while the Pavilion hosts Weddings, Corporate meetings, Retreats, Family gatherings and a variety of Community entertainment and Speical Programs like Murder Mystery Dinners, Luncheons featuring Historic figures, Craft Fairs and Seasonal events. Our staff will see to it that meeting or private function hosts relax without the worry of rentals since we house a fully outfitted commercial kitchen, BBQ, bar, tables, chairs, chair covers, and linens enough to host more than 200 guests. One half of the Event Center is beautifully carpeted leaving the remaining half to dance the night away. If an outdoor event is your desire we will make it come true with our fantastic House DJ, overhead LED lighting system and the finest quality in sound provide a club like atmosphere for all to dance under the stars.
