Capitol Hill (also known as Cap Hill) is anchored by the presence of the Colorado State Capitol and was originally the home of Denver’s most elite. Owners at the time often constructed elaborate mansions in which to live in. However, as the economy of Denver fell after the Silver Crash of 1893, many of the mansions were converted to apartments, office space, and multifamily dwelling use. The combination of the newfound affordability, urban character and eclectic architecture reinvigorated the area in the 2000s, and it continues to be a thriving neighborhood to this day.
Capitol Hill is home to many condo buildings, from modern high rises to historic walk-ups, and turn-of-the-century homes. With over 50 structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Capitol Hill is at the center of Denver’s historic preservation movement. The neighborhood has some of the best examples of the Denver Square and other Victorian styles.
Cap Hill offers countless restaurants, bars, cafes, stores, nightclubs, and museums-- there is always something going on! The easy access to downtown, several grocery stores, and multiple amazing parks make it an incredible easy place to live. Capitol Hill provides the quintessential city lifestyle.
