Docent spotlight: Peggy Breeding
Meet Peggy Breeding. She is a volunteer docent at the Highlands Ranch Mansion. Though originally a Colorado native, Peggy spent her career in Texas working as a registered nurse and in the special education field before returning to Denver upon retirement.
Peggy has been a docent for two and half years. When asked what she enjoys most about volunteering at the Mansion, she replied, "Meeting the people and sharing the history." Her favorite history fact is that Samuel Allen Long was the first owner of the Mansion in 1884 and built his home in 1891, information that wasn't discovered until the Mansion's renovation in 2010-2012. Peggy's favorite room at the Mansion is the living room, which she describes as "relaxing and soothing."
Peggy's knowledge and love for the Mansion is evident during her tours. There is no one quite like her.
