DENVER (CBS4)- A Denver woman with a dedication to conserving open space has left her estate to an organization dedicated to preserving land in Colorado and across the nation.

Helen Prue Prindle Grant died in July 2012. She wanted her legacy to live on in the scenic views of Denver for everyone to enjoy.

Her estate is located at 101 S. Humboldt Street and is made up of six city blocks facing the Denver Country Club.

The home on the estate is a mid-century modern that was built by renowned architect Thomas Moore for the Grant family.

Prue decided to leave her home to the The Conservation Fund which helps protect open space in Colorado and other states.

She is remembered for her interest in creating places for people to enjoy including Four Mile Historic Park which she helped establish. Prue also participated in the Garden Club of Denver.

Prue requested that after her death contributions be made in her tribute to Four Mile Historic Park.

The Conservation Fund which will benefit from the sale of Prue’s home, is best known locally for its protection of a large field of property located south of Denver.

The proceeds from the sale will be used by The Conservation Fund for protection of lands along the Front Range.
