|Molly Brown's House. She paid $30,000 for this house.|
Molly actually went by the name of Margaret. She became a millionaire due to her husband working as a superintendent in a mine in Leadville, CO. They were given shares of the company and overnight, they became very rich. They bought the house in Denver shortly thereafter.
Molly was a women who was living in the wrong time. She is more like a woman of today than in the 1800's. She actually ran for Senate which was unheard of for a woman of her time. Her husband was not happy. He said a woman's name should only appear in the paper three times; her birth, her wedding and her death. She withdrew from the race. She and her husband later separated, but they never divorced.
Mom said the tour of the house lasted an hour and it was fun. Pictures were not allowed to be taken inside. Here is a gallery of some of the items as well as more information about Molly. Molly Brown House
