Located in South Denver, the Cory-Merrill Neighborhood was established in 1895 as a dry town for citizens opposed to the numerous saloons in Denver (1).
It is situated north of I-25, west of Colorado Blvd, and south of Mississippi. It’s central to Downtown Denver and the Denver Technological Center (DTC) but retains a comfortable suburban feel. The Cory-Merrill community association has been strong for the past 30 years, and today the neighborhood is seeing a strong resurgence with many “scrapes” and remodeling happening on its streets. The homes in the neighborhood consist primarily of bungalows and ranches, but with the major facelifts happening, it’s now possible to find a wider variety of housing. Today you can see anything from Mission-style stucco to rugged wood to neo-electric contemporary mansions punctuating the tree-lined streets. Cory Merrill is only a short distance from Washington Park, a haven for nature enthusiasts that includes miles of trails and numerous other recreational activities. The adjacent shopping areas are convenient and easily accessible by residents. While diverse, the community is very close-knit and offers a range of activities throughout the year, including a neighborhood picnic. It’s a wonderful place for families and those looking for a comfortable retreat from the city.
