The Cherry Creek neighborhood is Denver's Beverly Hills, with high-end shopping, a good selection of restaurants, the best wine shop in town, and a hand full of boutique hotels, all within walking distance. It's defined by 6th Avenue, Alameda Avenue (or Cherry Creek), and University and Colorado Boulevards.
Decades prior to the first settlers coming to what was formerly the town of Harmon, there were reports that the cottonwood and pine trees lining the banks averaged 3 to 4 feet in diameter and there is archaeological evidence that centuries before their arrival, maize and amaranth was grown in the vicinity.
By 1882, several lots had been sold and the town was officially founded. At that time, the community lacked a central water supply, had ungraded streets, and the nearby creek was used by much of the Denver area as an outlet for sewage. According to an 1887 Denver Times article, “Harman incorporated because irrigation for crops and trees was needed for protection against tramps, bums, bummers (roughneck hoodlums), and the liquor traffic.” Just as the town was beginning to grow, the Panic of 1893 hit the country and Colorado suffered greatly due to the collapse of silver prices. At this time Harman was rendered bankrupt and its residents voted to become part of Denver in September of 1894.
Cherry Creek has grown and changed greatly since this time. Once full of modest brick bungalows like many other Denver neighborhoods, you can find lots of large Southern California/Dallas -type stucco homes.
