South Denver and University Park have always been unconventional. The founders of Colorado Seminary, now the University of Denver, wanted to build an oasis for education—away from the urban blight of the city and the temptation of its saloons. In the nineteenth century, South Denver grew around University Park, radiating out from Observatory Park and the famous Chamberlin Observatory. From the university’s founding through the return of GIs after World War II to the developments of the twenty-first century, local historian Steve Fisher chronicles the fascinating history of University Park and South Denver. Join Fisher as he travels down the old trolley tracks to discover the history of one of Denver’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
