Denver Colorado Neighborhoods

The small but vibrant neighborhood of Victorian homes and one-of-a-kind shops is
among Denver's most charming.
The Highland region originated in 1858
when Denver founder William H. Larimer, Jr., waded across the Platte River to
stake out high ground on the bluffs northwest of Denver. Bought and later sold
by Reverend Walter M. Potter, the 320-acre area bordered by West 38th Avenue,
Zuni Street, West 32nd Avenue and Federal Boulevard became home to many
Scottish, German, Italian and English immigrants in the 1890s. Some of Denver's
most architecturally diverse buildings exist here. Located from Federal
Boulevard to I-25 and from 38th Avenue to Speer Boulevard. The
Potter-Highlands Historic Direct encompasses the area from Federal to Zuni and
West 32nd to West 38th Avenues.
