South Denver

-A A +A

The town of South Denver sprouted along the Broadway streetcar line and grew to be the largest of the streetcar suburbs annexed by Denver. Incorporated in 1886, South Denver stretched from South Alameda to Yale avenues between Colorado Boulevard and Pecos Street. This white, middle-class town was annexed to Denver in 1893. Well preserved for the most part, South Denver has Denver's best collection of bungalows and its first International Style dwelling, the Hegner House (1935, built by Casper F. Hegner), 3525 East Dakota Avenue (northwest corner of South University Boulevard.)
