Thomas Hornsby Ferril House

Type: Historical Site

Both a Denver and a literary landmark, for eighty-eight years this house was the home of Thomas Hornsby Ferril (1896-1988), Colorado’s first poet laureate. It was sold by Ferril's daughter Anne Ferril Folsom to Historic Denver for one dollar in 1989, and her wish was that it be used as a literary center in honor of the legacy of her father. It has housed small businesses and nonprofit organizations including the Lighthouse Writers Workshop.
