Displacement in Denver: A Research Guide

This is a guide to the published and unpublished records that document major events of displacement in Denver's history. It should be noted that this guide is in no way comprehensive in capturing all occurrences of displacement to Denver residents. While some of these records are available digitally, most are available for in-person research only through DPL's Special Collections and Archives at the Central Library.

Disclaimer: Our collections contain racist, sexist and violent imagery and language that may be upsetting and traumatizing to our customers. By making sure historical materials are publicly available, the library acknowledges shameful injustice in our history to prompt open discussions, further historical scholarship, and support an informed and educated public.
