Park Hill

Park Hill’s roots can be traced back to Baron Allois Gillaume Eugene A. von Winckler, a Prussian man who was inspired by Denver’s existing Montclair neighborhood when he purchased land east of Denver’s City Park and platted Park Hill in 1887. He took his own life in 1898, and his land fell to developers who began creating what today is known as Park Hill.

Early developers sold Park Hill as a superior option to the immediately adjacent City Park not merely as a place of relaxation and leisure, but also as a buffer between the noise and bustle of the City. Developers also drew a contrast with Capitol Hill, which they represented as a neighborhood then in decline. Park Hill's early development was like any other so-called streetcar suburb established in other turn-of-the-century American cities. The Park Railway Company, established in 1888, operated until 1899 when the Denver Tramway Company absorbed it. By the early 1930s, Park Hill had become an automobile suburb, as most Denver commuters now made their way to work by private car.

Park Hill has always been characterized as amongst Denver's most desirable places to live. Often presented as not merely as a place to call home, but a reflection of accomplishment, affluence, its significant diversity in its streets and in the architecture of its homes. Park Hill's residential styles range from Victorian, to Denver Squares, to Arts and Crafts homes of the early twentieth century, to modest mid-century homes constructed for new postwar families.
