Welcome to the Lakewood Historical Society inc.

The Lakewood Colorado Historical Society was formed in 1974 to record, preserve, and share Lakewood’s history. An active partnership with the City of Lakewood is maintained  in supporting the Lakewood Heritage Center. Our newsletter, The Lakewood Historian, is published quarterly, with information on our activities and memories of old Lakewood and its people and places.

Belmar Estate of Denver heiress May Bonfils

 

Before there was a town of Lakewood, wealthy Denver families came here to get away from the city. They built extravagant country homes. And one of the most extravagant of all was Belmar, the estate of Denver heiress May Bonfils. Built in 1930, the great house remained a bastion of Denver high society until it was torn down in 1970--making way for such popular attractions as Belmar Park and the new Lakewood City Commons and Civic Center.
