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.
