How You Can Serve.

About the Sunnyside Neighborhood

                                                               Before any major housing

                                                               development occurred in Sunnyside,

                                                               the area west of Pecos Street was

                                                               occupied by small truck farms,

                                                               orchards and undeveloped land. In

                                                               1879, the northeast corner of the

                                                               neighborhood was incorporated as

                                                               the town of Argo. As a "company

                                                               town," Argo was settled primarily by

                                                               Swedes who worked at the smelter and by others who worked for the Moffatt Railroad.

 

Sunnyside became a part of Denver through three annexations. The first two occurred under the Colorado Session Laws of 1883 and 1889. The third took place when the town of Argo was dissolved and merged with Denver in 1902. AS a result, the housing in Sunnyside is a mix of many types, ages and style of architecture. Most of the oldest housing is found east of Pecos Street.
