The Mayfair (Hale) Neighborhood

Nestled between some of Denver’s most sought after neighborhoods, Mayfair is a small community of friends and neighbors residing in a collection of tudors, bungalows, and ranches a short distance east of Downtown Denver. In 1885, Baron Walter Von Richthofen proclaimed Mayfair “The Beautiful Suburban Town of Denver” and advertised the area as a healthy alternative to the moral dilemmas of city living. The area now known as Mayfair became part of Denver in 1902 but was not officially named until after World War II when returning GI’s settled in the area. The area was attractive to these men and their families for many of the same reasons that Mayfair is so popular today. With its wide streets, large lots, varied architecture, and proximity to Downtown Denver, Mayfair is truly an example of urban living with a suburban feel.

City Park is located just north of Mayfair near the Denver Zoo and the Museum of Nature and Science. Mayfair has its own shopping center at 14th and Krameria Street which has been serving the community for over fifty years, while Colfax Avenue boasts its own assortment of shops and restaurants on the northern border of the neighborhood. In addition, Mayfair is just up the street from the shops, restaurants, and special events found in Cherry Creek.
