Highland

Incorporated in 1875, Highland, or “The Highlands” as it is commonly called, used to be its own town, known as the Garden City of the Plains, until it was annexed to Denver in 1896. The early districts, including Highland Park and Potter Highlands, each have their own unique history. Developers decided on a Scottish theme for the neighborhood, naming the district after the Scottish Highlands and using Scottish towns as street names which are still used today. 

What To Expect

The Highland neighborhood consists of several distinct areas with the most well-known being Lower Highland and the Potter Highlands Historic District. Lower Highland (known as LoHi) is the epicenter of the Highland neighborhood, offering historic single family homes alongside modern townhomes and new condominium developments. It is characterized by its broad range of architectural styles due to two distinct periods of development in the neighborhood: the first from 1874 up to the Silver Crash in 1893 and the second from 1896 to the 1940s- Potter Highlands Historic District is comprised of everything from Queen Anne and Craftsman to Colonial and Dutch Revival, Denver Squares, Mission and Prairie styles. 

Why We Love It

Consistently recognized as one of the best neighborhoods in the United States, it is no surprise that Highland is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Denver. The Highland neighborhood is a hub for small local businesses who thrive in this buzzing and historic community. Some of Denver’s best restaurants, easy access to downtown, and impressive views of Denver and the Rocky Mountains only add to the charm of this already highly desirable neighborhood.
