Home Market Report : Jan 2021
Denver was established by a group of prospectors in 1858, is
located at the confluence of the South Platte River and Cherry Creek. Near
the foothills of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is also
the county seat for Denver County, Colorado, and one of the few
city/county governments that has been merged into one jurisdiction.
Nicknamed "The Mile High City," Denver's official elevation, measured from
the 15th step of the state capitol building's west side, is one statute
mile (5,280 feet) above sea level. Founded in the Kansas Territory, the
city's name was chosen to honor the territory's governor, James W. Denver.
Prior to the U.S. Army's General Larimer placing cottonwood logs to stake
out claims, the area had been used by the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians for
seasonal encampments. Larimer's intention was to create a major city that
would cater to emigrants.
Violating the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty, he worked with agents at the
Denver City Land Company to sell parcels in town to business owners and
miners. Several months after the formation of the Colorado Territory, in
November 1861, the city was incorporated. Until the Sand Creek Massacre of
1864, the Arapaho Indians continued to co-exist with the white settlers.
After the brutal killing of 163 Arapaho, mostly women and children, at the
hands of Colonel John M. Chivington, the remaining band were confined to
reservations in Oklahoma and Wyoming.
When the railroads arrived between 1870 and 1890, Denver grew from about
5,000 to more than 100,000 people. At that time, Denver became the second
most populated city in the West, second only to San Francisco, California.
