A display of memorabilia at the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver. A few blocks from Colorado’s state Capitol – and over 1700 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and a mile above sea level – is a museum dedicated to a woman eclipsed by legend following the sinking of the Titanic. The “unsinkable Molly Brown” moved into this stone Victorian home after she and her husband struck it rich at a gold mine in Colorado’s mountains, nearly 20 years before she boarded the Titanic because it was the first boat she could get back home to visit her ailing grandson.
