Denver, the capital of
Colorado, was established by a party of prospectors on November 22, 1858,
after a gold discovery at the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South
Platte River. Town founders named the dusty crossroads for James W.
Denver, Governor of Kansas Territory, of which eastern Colorado was then a
part. Other gold discoveries sparked a mass migration of some 100,000 in
1859-60, leading the federal government to establish Colorado Territory in
The Mile High City's
aggressive leadership, spearheaded by William N. Byers, founding editor of
the Rocky Mountain News, and Territorial Governor John Evans, insisted
that the Indians must go. After dispossessing the natives, Denverites
built a network of railroads that made their town the banking, minting,
supply and processing center not only for Colorado, but for neighboring
states. Between 1870 when the first railroads arrived and 1890, Denver
grew from 4,759 to 106,713. In a single generation, it became the second
most populous city in the West, second only to San Francisco.
Although founded as the main supply town for Rocky Mountain mining camps,
Denver also emerged as a hub for high plains agriculture. Denver's
breweries, bakeries, meat packing and other food-processing plants made it
the regional agricultural center, as well as a manufacturing hub for farm
and ranch equipment, barbed wire, windmills, seed, feed and harnesses.
