The historic Baker neighborhood is a compact triangle nestled within Broadway Street on the east, the South Platte River on the west, 6th Avenue on the north and Mississippi Avenue on the south.
Originally called South Side or South Broadway, Baker's history dates back to the 1880s. The neighborhood is a mix of industrial, commercial and residential properties with hundreds of 19th century brick houses and 39 buildings by locally famous architect William Lang. The neighborhood has the largest collection of Queen Anne Middle Class homes in Denver, with other popular 19th and early 20th century styles, including Victorian Eclectic and Classic Cottages. Baker was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district in 1985 and became a city historic district in 2000.
It’s a lively urban neighborhood, close to downtown and lined with unique restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, music venues and drinking spots along Broadway. Baker’s art deco Mayan Theater is a Denver landmark, open since the 1930’s.
