Founded in 1880, Denver’s Capitol Hill community includes historic residences that many of our city’s wealthy and elite–silver barons, senators, and governmental leaders, even the unsinkable Molly Brown–called home in the early days of our city. With general boundaries of Colfax, York, 7th Avenue, and Lincoln Street, Capitol Hill is one of the city’s most vibrant residential and commercial environments.
Uncovering Cap Hill
The Capitol Hill landscape is dotted with impressive residences constructed of native Colorado stone. Mansions and homes in varying styles–Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Tudor, and Romanesque, among others–are juxtaposed with modern high rises, apartments, condos, and lofts that offer the best of city life. The neighborhood is adjacent to many of Denver’s government facilities and is one of the city’s most affordable.
With a unique and energetic flair, Capitol Hill combines the best of urban living and convenience with an homage to Denver’s historic origins. Capitol Hill’s pedestrian-friendly community offers the comforts of suburban living–tree-lined streets and parks, namely Cheeseman and Civic Center Park–with eclectic retail and restaurant options, an alternative arts scene, and entertainment venues such as the Ogden and Fillmore theatres.
