Denver Neighborhood – Cory Merrill

Denver Neighborhood – Cory Merrill

Named after the schools in the area, Cory Merrill was once part of the Town of South Denver (which had boundaries along the South Platte River, Alameda Avenue, Colorado Boulevard and Yale Avenue). It was founded in 1858 to be a dry town because its citizens didn’t like the saloons that had take over Denver. The Town of South Denver included polo grounds south of Cherry Creek, the University of Denver and the Seminary which was surrounded by land that later became Bonnie Brae, Belcaro and Cory Merrill Neighborhoods.

Today the Cory Merrill neighborhood is changing rapidly. Smaller homes built in the 1930’s and after have been scraped, and large homes and multifamily duplexes have been built while maintain some of the architectural integrity of the neighborhood. The five-year rebuild of I-25, gave this neighborhood light rail service. Cory Merrill’s central location between downtown and the Denver Tech Center and the strength of it’s schools have made this a very desirable location.
