About the West Highland Neighborhood

                                                                The West Highland neighborhood

                                                                includes the northwestern part of

                                                                what was the incorporated Town of

                                                                Highlands. From its beginning as an

                                                                elite suburb of the "unsavory" city of

                                                                Denver in 1875 the town expanded
                                                                until its boundaries stretched north

                                                                from Colfax Avenue to 38th Avenue

                                                                and west from Zuni Street to

                                                                Sheridan Boulevard. By 1890, there were 35 subdivision developments in addition to the original Highland Park. 

 

As the population of the town grew, it did not remain as exclusively wealthy as its original planners had intended. Many of the subdivisions allowed small homes to be built on 25-foot lots. However, the town did remain residential and the housing was primarily owner-occupied, with great pride shown by the owners.
