About Denver

Denver is Colorado's largest city and capital. This beautiful city is close to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Each of the area's four seasons attract a variety of tourists. Nearly 620,000 people call Denver home.

The city's history began with the discovery of gold in 1858. In 1859, General William Larimer attempted to create a large city on an abandoned mining settlement, which at the time was in the Territory of Kansas. Thus, Larimer named the town Denver City to gain favor from the governor of Kansas, James Denver. Unbeknownst to Larimer, Denver was no longer the governor.

The area surrounding Denver City broke off from Kansas to form the Territory of Colorado on February 28, 1861. These years were some of the most unstable years in all of Denver's history. The original gold mines were quickly exhausted, threatening the growth of the new town. Fortunately, prospectors were able to find larger gold mines nearby.

Fire was a constant fear for Denver's early citizens. A major fire broke out in April of 1863, destroying a large section of the town. Unfortunately, the fire was not the end of Denver's woes. In the following spring, the nearby Cherry Creek was overrun with spring run-off and rains. The creek flooded the town, destroying buildings and drowning several citizens. Undeterred, the citizens began to rebuild immediately. As the rebuilding progressed, Denver began to take shape as a true city, with sturdy buildings instead of rows of shacks and tents.

Denver's population began to skyrocket with the addition of a railroad stop in 1870. The city quickly became much more than a mining town as tourists came to experience the city. The impressive growth of the city continued with the discovery of new silver mines. By 1920, the city was home to over 256,000 residents. Despite its early struggles, Denver lived on to become a major American city.
