Colorado’s Governor’s Residence, The Boettcher Mansion, Denver – Lower Garden

This view from the upper garden looking south to the lower garden and Carriage House also takes in a grand view of Pikes Peak. The pergola on the left duplicates the design on the original windows of the mansion shown below. The carriage house had not been used for years and is now used for receptions and luncheons saving the interior of the mansion from wear and tear. The lower garden hosted the wedding of one of former Governor Roy Romer’s daughters.
