FIVE POINTS
HARLEM OF THE WEST
Welcome to Five Points, Denver.
Five Points is situated on the northeast side of the downtown business district, and is one of the oldest historic neighborhoods in Colorado. The name Five Points derives from the vertexes formed where the following streets meet: 26th Street, 27th Street, Washington Street and Welton Street. The neighborhood's history became significant from the 1860s through the 1950s, when it was home to Denver's upper class. Aristocrats, housing mayors, governors and business moguls all called Five Points their home. Five Points was also known as the Harlem of the West, when a large African-American population moved in due to discriminatory laws in other neighborhoods. Between the 1920s and 1950s, Five Points became a thriving community with a vibrant mix of businesses and retail establishments. Welton Street was home to more than 50 bars, restaurants and clubs, where some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time have played - including Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Nat King Cole. Five Points has always been a diverse community, and it still is. While the area has faced some decline in the past, the city has attempted to rebuild its former glory with the Five Points Business District. As far as recreation, the Sonny Lawson Park is a public neighborhood park that has recently received a revitalized ball field, exercise equipment and several layout improvements.
