The Park Hill neighborhood has been known for many years as one of Denver’s more “liberal minded” neighborhoods. In fact, in the 1950’s, young white progressive professionals began to purposefully integrate this formerly mostly African-American neighborhood. The result became an example of diversity here and across the nation.
A Denver Civil Rights Story
During the 1950s, Denver’s professional class moved in by droves and with them came the idea of truly integrated housing. Park Hill is still home to many doctors, lawyers, and “white collar” professionals. The largest Methodists Church in Denver is found here, and provides a primary focus for social and religious activities.
