7th. Avenue Historic District

7th. Avenue Historic District Features Grand Mansions

The 7th. Avenue Historic district in now was is South Capitol Hill was developed at the height of the City Beautiful movement. The city bought the parkway land in 1912, redesigned the streets, and hired an outside consultant to work with city landscaper Saco DeBoer to design the plantings. The Frederick Law Olmsted firm, designer of New York’s Central Park, was the consultant.

Beginning in the late nineteenth century, the City Beautiful movement aim was to create a urban environment with recreational facilities, parks, beautiful landscapes and outstanding homes. Robert Speer, then Mayor led the way promoting the City Beautiful movement.

Though it is Denver’s largest historic district, the 7th. Avenue Historic District is only two blocks wide for most of its length. The district runs from Logan Street to Colorado Boulevard and from East 6th to East 8th Avenues. From Steele to Harrison Streets, its width is confined to the East 7th Avenue Parkway and to those homes that border the parkway. The homes in the historic district are a treasured part of the Denver history.
