”The Unsinkable Molly Brown”—who actually was only known as Margaret during her lifetime (the Molly moniker was an invention of Broadway)—ascended from modest beginnings as the wife of miner J.J. Brown in Leadville, who struck it big in the 1890s and moved to Mansion Row in Denver, the site of this museum now dedicated to life and times of Molly, er, Margaret Brown. She was known for her commitment to social causes before earning her immortal nickname after surviving the Titanic disaster in 1912. Today the house celebrates Brown's amazing life and times while providing a glimpse into life in Denver in the early 20th century with rooms decorated just as they were in their famous owner's heyday.
