How You Can Serve.

About the Five Points Neighborhood

                                                                 Five Points was one of the earliest

                                                                 neighborhoods developed outside the

                                                                 original boundaries of the

                                                                 congressional land grant awarded to

                                                                 Denver in 1864. In the late 1860s,

                                                                 several additions to the town were

                                                                 created in anticipation of growth

                                                                 resulting from the completion of

                                                                 railroad systems linking Denver with

                                                                 the East. A number of factors influenced early development in the Five Points Neighborhood. The city's first streetcar system operated a line ending at Twenty-seventh and Champa in the city's first streetcar suburb, Curtis Park. Churches in the Five Points Neighborhood also played a pivotal role in the lives of its residents. As Five Points changed, the local churches mitigated social pressures on minority and immigrant groups and encouraged ethnic identity and cultural interaction.
