Capitol Hill Neighborhood History

The mile high locale of the Colorado State Capitol was once the neighborhood of Denver’s wealthiest residents. By the close of the twentieth century, the area had evolved into an exciting blend of past and present with classic century-old mansions and contemporary town homes and apartment buildings existing side by side. From the historic Molly Brown house to the boldly contemporary Art Museum Residences, Capitol Hill is an exuberant residential, governmental and commercial center with an array of museums, cafes, clubs, galleries, coffeehouses and shops.
