Auraria Casa Mayan Heritage (ACMH) was created to promote Denver’s early Auraria settlement and the legendary Casa Mayan restaurant and cultural center, now preserved on the Ninth Street Historic Park, a national historic landmark on Denver’s tri-institutional Auraria Campus. The Casa Mayan was able to bridge social, cultural and economic barriers at a time when divisions among many groups were common. The Latino community was the last to reside there and contributed to Denver’s 152 year history. Ethnic groups gravitated into this area where their ingenuity and hard work prospered. It is our mission to "make history relevant" and accessible to not only our Colorado community, but to our nations community-at-large. We examine our local history that connects us with global communities. Auraria continually redefines and sustains itself as a diverse, inclusive and thriving population.
