7th Avenue Historic District Real Estate

The East 7th Avenue Historic District is Denver's largest community designated for historic preservation. The 7th Avenue Historic District runs from East 6th to East 8th Avenues and from Steele to Harrison Streets. 750 Lafayette Street was once the location of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s wedding, as well as the working White House in the summers during his time in office. Resting at the southern edge of Capital Hill, 7th Avenue Historic District was spared the wrecking ball in the mid 1960's, when Denver went through its skyscraper slash apartmentbuilding phase. Today the East 7th Avenue Historic District places great value on the design and character that continues to make it one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city.

Elegant mansions along quiet city streets, lined with tall, shade trees would best describe the topography here. Most of the large stately homes in the 7th Avenue Historic District were built by Denver’s elite at the turn of the last century, with money that came from mining, transportation, and real estate. The district contains quite a variety of architectural styles that lend to its unique character, including Mediterranean Revival, Neoclassical, and Colonial. Early residents of the 7th Avenue Historic District were both wealthy and middle class citizens, and as development continued throughout the early 1900’s, larger mansions were built on the street corners, facing the parkway. This configuration of the real estate remains today.

The Governor’s Mansion of course, at 8th and Logan, lays within the 7th Avenue Historic District boundaries, and the residence, originally owned by the Boettcher family was donated to the state for use as the Governor’s Mansion, in the late 1950’s. Today the East 7th Avenue Historic District thrives as a centrally located, upscale residential neighborhood in Denver that city officials over the years, have wisely chosen to preserve.
