Tour Denver With Phil Goodstein

This open space in the center of the city’s storied Capitol Hill neighborhood was once the community’s pioneer cemetery. There are still upwards of 2,000 bodies buried there. How they got there and why they remain is but the beginning of the stroll, one which points out visible sunken graves in the park. The walk then focuses on how the classic Hollywood horror flick, “The Changeling” is based on events at Cheesman Park. In 2018, a release of the film on Blu-Ray includes a trailer with Goodstein detailing the specific Mile High developments. Additionally, the two-hour tour visits nearby historic mansions, complete with tales about their colorful owners.
