Congress Park Homes for Sale, Denver
The history of Congress Park homes for sale goes back to the late 19th century. Between 1880 and 1890, Denver’s population grew exponentially from just 35,000 to over 100,000. By then, the air quality in the city had pushed residents to the outskirts of town.
Improvements in transportation, such as the development of cable cars in the area, made the eastern sections of the Capitol Hill neighborhood more accessible to the middle class. With the expanding middle class, Congress Park was platted into more than ten subdivisions between 1887 and 1888, and on March 11, 1889, the area was incorporated into Denver.
While originally known as Capitol Heights, Congress Park has been the name used for the neighborhood by the city of Denver since the 1970s.
Today, Congress Park real estate boasts some of the city’s most beautiful homes and vintage turn-of-the-century properties, giving residents easy access to the small greenspaces of Congress Park as well as the neighboring Cheesman Park.
