East 7th Ave. Parkway’s beautiful tree-lined streets, eclectic mix of well-preserved historical homes, meticulously manicured landscaping and close proximity to downtown Denver and Cherry Creek make it one of Denver’s most desirable places to live.
The neighborhood was built primarily between the 1890s and 1930s and is considered Denver’s largest Historic District, despite being only two blocks wide for most of its length, running from Logan St. to Colorado Blvd. and from East 6th to 8th Avenues. The parkways in this historic district were created to help connect City Park, Cheesman Park and Washington Park. The areawas developed at the height of the City Beautiful Movement, a nationwide movement of beautifying cities based on European Style, and this intent is reflected throughout the neighborhood. Most of Denver’s finest architects worked in the neighborhoodand many chose to live there, along with Dwight and Mamie Doud Eisenhower and other notables of the day. For a small piece of history and a big slice of elegance, the 7th Avenue Historic District offers up some of Denver’s finest homes.
