Cheesman Park

CHEESMAN PARK , A NEIGHBORHOOD OF HISTORIC INTRIGUE BUILT AROUND A CEMETARY

Denver’s Cheesman Park began in 1859 as a cemetary on one of the highest and most beautiful locations in Denver. Mt. Prospect was founded by Denver founder William Larimer and years later became known as the City Cemetary. In the late 1800's as grand homes dotted this highly desirable location, The City Cemetery was re-located and Cheesman Park was created in 1882. Early residential construction began with the platting of Wyman’s Addition in 1882 and Morgan’s Capitol Hill Subdivision in 1887. The neighborhood was originally served by several streetcar lines with the earliest being a cable car up Colfax to York Street in the mid 1880s. Today the area is a mixture of Grand Historic homes, single family homes, conversions, apartment buildings, high-rise apartments and condos, and commercial buildings.

Multi Family units are homes sell  from the mid $200's to up over a million.  Single family homes range from the mid $600's to the many millions.
