Denver CO Homes for Sale
Those who are looking at Denver CO homes for sale recognize the modern day amenities-the public transportation system, the museums, the year-round sports, and the plentiful shopping- but the city has come a long way from the unsettled wilderness that once dominated the landscape.
The Rocky Mountains once offered little more than beaver pelts to trappers and remained ignored by the westward expansion of manifest Destiny and the search for precious metal on the West Coast. Then in 1858 the discovery of a few flakes of gold inspired the settling of a town. This made Denver special. Most towns were settled off of road, railroads, lakes, or rivers. Denver was started because of those gold flakes.
The town got its name because the founders were trying to win favor of the territorial governor, James Denver, who died before the founders could reap any rewards.
Of course the first permanent structure was a saloon. When three settlements near each other had to choose a name, a barrel of whiskey cleared the way for the single name of Denver in 1859. Keeping with its roots, the Coors Brewery in Denver is the world’s largest single brewery.
The beginnings were not always the easiest. Ignoring warnings from local Indians, the settler s built the town on a site that would be destroyed two times by fire or flood.
Once the town settled and permanent structures withstood threats of fire and flood the town began to build railways that helped to establish it as the center for banking and minting. In present day the U.S. Mint operates a facility in the city.
The town’s central location helped the town survive after the gold and silver boom left the town without many natural resources to maintain growth. Denver, halfway between major Midwestern hubs Chicago and Detroit and the cities of the West Coast, took advantage of its location to serve as a distribution center for products between the two regions.
Denver has continued to grow and use every advantage to grow as a city. Emerging from the “Old West” to become a major distribution center that supports a city of half a million people.
The city even took advantage in the early 1990s to bring technology companies to the area with low tax rates. Anybody looking at Denver CO homes for sale is sure to appreciate the resourcefulness of such a city.
