For 150 years, the Capitol Hill neighborhood has played an important role in the history of Colorado state. By the end of the twentieth century, the area had evolved into an exciting blend of past and present with classic century-old mansions and contemporary town homes and apartment buildings existing side by side.
From the historic Molly Brown House to the boldly contemporary Art Museum Residences, Capitol Hill is an exuberant residential, governmental, and commercial center with an array of museums, cafes, clubs, galleries, coffeehouses and shops (Denver Library).

“At the foundation of all Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods does is the notion of civic participation – that our community becomes healthier and more vibrant through the active involvement of the people who live and work in our neighborhoods.
Fundamental to Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods Mission is working to strengthen the civic health of our neighborhoods. It seems like an intangible element but when you’re in a community with strong civic health, you know it.” (CHUN)
Over many years we have:
- Prevented the closure of neighborhood schools
- Worked with the city and other neighborhoods to designate many historic districts and landmark structures
- Planted thousands of street trees in all parts of Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods
- Worked with the city and other neighborhoods to reduce the number of one-way streets and to add street parking in many areas (source).
