Alamo Placita Historic District

Alamo Placita Historic District, one of Denver's oldest neighborhoods

Alamo Placita Historic District was the land just south of the budding Denver bought by investor Moses Hallett in 1864. Hallett’s quarter section of land became Arlington Park Addition, and later, Alamo Placita neighborhood. By 1887, Denver’s southern city limit was the northern border of Hallett’s claim (now East 6th Avenue). A road on the eastern edge of Hallett’s land, called Hallett Road, is now Downing Street. In 1889, Hallett sold his land to the Arlington Park Land and Improvement Company and became one of several investors in the company.


There are many architectural styles that can be found in Alamo Placita, one of Denver's earliest neighborhoods as it evolved over time. Queen Anne Victorians, Cottages, Denver Square, Dutch Colonial Revival and Bungalows dot the landscape.  The neighborhood was home to Jane Silverstene Ries' brilliant landscaping that won her fame. Her designs can be seen on many homes in the area.
