This April 15, 1912, photo on display in the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver shows a life boat which rescued Molly Brown from the sinking Titanic. A few blocks from Colorado's state Capitol -- over 1700 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and a mile above sea level -- is a museum dedicated to a woman eclipsed by legend following the sinking of the Titantic. The "unsinkable Molly Brown" moved into this stone Victorian home after she and her husband struck it rich at a gold mine in Colorado's mountains, nearly 20 years before she boarded the Titanic because it was the first boat she could get back home to visit her ailing grandson.
