Capitol Hill Neighborhood

. .


Capitol Hill had its origins with Henry C. Brown (no relation to Molly Brown) a carpenter who arrived in the new community of Denver in 1860. There’s always work for a carpenter in a growing community, and he soon prospered. A man with a vision, he purchased land on the hill to the east of town. In 1876 he donated a portion of the land to the new State of Colorado for its Capitol Building.

As Denver expanded in the 1880s and 1890s it moved eastward and up the hill, just as Brown had expected. That hill, away from the warehouses, railroads, and factories of the South Platte River valley, became prime real estate. Ranchers, miners, and merchants were drawn to this area, where they built large mansions befitting their newfound wealth. Capitol Hill was where Denver’s newly hatched high society roosted, looking down the hill at the saloons, dance halls, and stockyards of Lower Downtown.

Today Capitol Hill is distinguished by civic and cultural institutions on its western fringe and an eclectic mix of museums, shops, restaurants, bars, apartment buildings, condo conversion buildings, and restored homes in its heart.
