River Drive Historic Landmark District, Denver

River Drive Historic District is located on West River Drive in the Jefferson Park Neighborhood, one of the oldest established residential areas of Denver. The 17 extant properties that comprise the district were part of the 1881 River Front Addition to the Town of Highlands and represent some of the city’s oldest building stock in a rare surviving and intact portion of the original neighborhood.

Set on a bluff overlooking the South Platte River and downtown, the district was originally home to a number of working-class residents, many of whom were employed by some of the city’s earliest and most influential industries within walking distance or a short streetcar ride away. The district exhibits a high level of physical integrity, and several architectural styles and building types are present among the small number of properties. They include the Terrace Type, Queen Anne, Gable Front, Dutch Colonial, and Foursquare.
