Moving in Denver
The Mile High City
Denver, Colorado. In 1858, there was not a single person living in the Denver metro area. Thirty years later, Colorado was a state with a population of almost 200,000. Unlike most cities, Denver began as a gold mining town during the Gold Rush. Over the years as the population grew, Montana City, St. Charles, and Auraria were three of the most prominent towns in the Midwest. These three communities came together and assumed the name of Denver. If you wish to find out more about our past, visit the History Colorado Center!
