History

One hundred and forty years ago, Cherry Creek North was part of a small town called Harman. Since then, Cherry Creek North has emerged as a thriving neighborhood community in the city of Denver and Colorado, continually developing into a very special mixed-use district.

The neighborhood is located near the geographic center of the City and County of Denver and is a mixture of dense urban development and tree-lined welcoming residential streets. It is bounded by Cherry Creek on the south, East Sixth Avenue to the north, University Boulevard, and Colorado Boulevard on the west and east, respectively.
 
The neighborhood takes its name from the nearby Cherry Creek running along the south side of the neighborhood. Denver was first settled along the confluence of the South Platte River and Cherry Creek, the term “Cherry Creek” is often used in business names to designate their affiliation with this historical Denver area.
