Mary Elitch Long (1856-1936), was a businesswoman and founder of Elitch's Zoological Garden (Denver's first zoo).

Debra B. Faulkner, author of the award-winning biography Touching Tomorrow: The Emily Griffith Story, brings the story of Colorado's "First Lady of Fun" to the Now You Know Bio series.

"How pleased Mary Elitch would be to share memories of her Gardens with readers in the twenty-first century! Mary's amusement park was beloved by people of all ages for its animals, its rides, and its famous theater."
— Betty Lynne Hull, Elitch Gardens Park Historian
