About the Cole Neighborhood
The Cole neighborhood became part
of the City under the Territorial
Session Laws of 1874. The
neighborhood is bounded by 32nd
and 40th Avenues and York and
Downing Streets. More than half of
the residential blocks were
developed prior to 1900. By 1930, it
was fully developed. The pattern of development generally occurred from southwest to northeast. Much of the area remains typical of middle-class sections of the city developed at the turn of the century. Cole Junior High School, the neighborhood's focal point, and the neighborhood were named for Carlos M. Cole, who as Superintendent of Denver's Public Schools, was instrumental in establishing junior high schools in Denver.
