Parkside Mansion was built in 1905 by Colorado Lumber Baron Charles Daniel McPhee and his business partner John J. McGinnity. Since this time it has housed some of Colorado’s most prominent residents who lived, worked, and celebrated in the building. Charles D. McPhee, the son of Irish immigrants, moved to Denver in 1869 with his wife Angela. By the 1920s, the McPhee & McGinnity Company had become one of the leading materials suppliers within the fourteen western states. These two socially prominent and philanthropic families were listed in the Who’s Who and Social Registry in Denver for many years.
Transition into a Luxury Event Venue
As it was known throughout the years, the McPhee-McGinnity Mansion was purchased in 1981 as a luxury wedding venue, and corporate event site. A complete and thorough restoration took place adding an expansive grand ballroom allowing the mansion to host up to 300 guests.
The roof-top patio above the ballroom accommodates an additional 120 guests, highlighting a backdrop of City Park and Denver’s weather in the warmer months.
Currently operating as Denver’s premier boutique special events and luxury wedding venue, Parkside Mansion offers a unique, exclusive and intimate setting. Reminiscent of a bygone era with towering columns, arched leaded glass windows and rich paneled ceilings, Parkside will awe and impress. Located on the western edge of Denver’s City Park, views from the rooftop patio are unparalleled.
Culminating in early 2016, the most recent renovations capture the elegance and charm of the Victorian era while seamlessly combining modern conveniences for the perfect event experience. Boasting numerous layout options, grand ballroom, full AV capabilities, prep kitchen and ample on-site parking; Parkside stands out from the crowd.
