Created as a separate county in 1902 from Arapahoe County, the City of Denver was and still is the hub of not only Colorado but the Rocky Mountain Region. Denver, however, existed long before it became a county in its own right. It was in 1858 that gold flakes were discovered at the confluence of the South Platte River and Cherry Creek. Three separate small mining "tent towns" were quickly established - Denver, Auraria, and a third small one. With a barrel of whiskey as the prize, they merged into one and officially became the town of Denver. It was named after James Denver, Territorial Governor of Kansas Territory. And as they say, the RUSH was on!
As we develop these pages, we will have a history of Denver from the Colorado Gold Rush days forward. Meanwhile, be sure to bookmark our site and return often. We welcome your visits, suggestions and data to help us record Denver's wonderful history.
A great deal of my childhood memories revolve around Denver, especially North Denver. I learned to swim in Berkeley Lake, ice skate on Rocky Mountain Lake, been paddle boating on Sloans and City Park Lakes - and used to know the Denver Zoo and Denver Museum of Natural History by heart! What started out as a collection of data for our own family history has turned into a sharing project for anyone interested in Denver and its wild, glorious past! So welcome to the Denver History and Genealogy Project!
