The Cory-Merrill Neighborhood

Named after the schools in the area, Corey-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 taken 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 the Bonnie Brae, Belcaro and Cory-Merrill neighborhoods.

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