Capitol Hill Neighborhood Highlights
Capitol Hill is one of the most eclectic and interesting neighborhoods in the city of Denver. It has a diverse community and is particularly popular with young people who enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. The properties of the neighborhood are just as diverse as its population. There is an abundance of studio and one bedroom apartments in the neighborhood as well as many condos or multi-family homes. Capitol Hill also has plenty of beautiful single family homes to choose from, many of which are among the oldest in the city. Some of the larger mansions have recently been converted into offices.
Capitol Hill lies just southeast of Downtown Denver, which means that its residents have an easy commute to work or entertainment in the busy downtown area. Despite its proximity to downtown, it has a very different character from the business center of the city. The Colorado State Capitol is also nearby, hence the neighborhood name. Most of the buildings in Capitol Hill were built during the 1920s, giving the neighborhood an attractive and historic character. Capitol Hill is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Denver, and it has a distinctly artistic flavor. Both Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg made their homes in this neighborhood. The apartment buildings on Sherman Street, between 10th and 11th streets are known as Poet’s Row. Each of the apartment complexes are named after a different famous poet, such as Robert Frost or Emily Dickinson.
