When Henry Cordes Brown donated a parcel of his land in 1868 as a location for a future state capitol, no one could imagine what a thriving neighborhood the area around "Brown's Bluff" would become. Twenty years later, Capitol Hill would grow into the city's most fashionable residential district. Through the years, Capitol Hill evolved, seeing everything from millionaire's row to skid row, and remains today one of Denver's most diverse and intriguing neighborhoods. Not only is the area home to Colorado's government, but it also contains some of the city's most remarkable architecture. More than that, however, the history of Capitol Hill is filled with memorable people, places, and stories.
