Preservationists hope for compromise amid effort to save Denver funeral home
DENVER – The old Olinger Moore Howard Chapel mortuary closed earlier this year. Neighbors objected when owners filed for a demolition permit. The North Denver funeral home is the latest battleground in a war over property rights versus the desire to defend history. It's similar to the high-profile Tom’s Diner controversy-- where the owner made a deal with preservationists in order to sell his property.
