i'll spare you the whole of the sloppy flyer and the details of this house for sale in Baker ... it's clearly not Victorian (it seems like an unadorned Denver Square with an ill-fitting veneer of grooved stucco)

whether it is Faboulus is open for debate; it has also been "remolded" (so states the flyer twice); and it's in "Historic Baker", the brand in which some realtors are wrapping our neighborhood

snippet of real estate flyer with typo

yes, Baker has a history; a portion of Baker (not including this Faboulus Victorian, by the way) was included in 1985 on the National Register of Historic Places and that same area later became a Denver Landmark Historic District; this district helps make Baker fascinating and special, but it is not the definition of Baker

once you brand it the way some realtors and bar crawlers have, "Historic Baker", people start repeating it, and you have something less, something like Colonial Williamsburg, which has turned it's tremendous history into little more than an amusement park

let's hope Baker never does that
