The western bank of Cherry Creek, a placid stream that flows from the Palmer Divide south of Denver, is the site of Auraria, one of the area’s first settlements. Most of old Auraria was razed to make way for the Auraria Higher Education Center, a 171-acre campus that is now part of the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College, and the Community College of Denver. Local preservationists, including Historic Denver, Inc. and the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission, were able to save some of the area’s notable buildings and houses. This walk explores the remaining historic buildings on the Auraria Campus as well as the nearby Denver Performing Arts Complex. Special attractions: Denver Performing Arts Complex, St. Elizabeth’s Church, Ninth Street Historic District, St. Cajetan’s Church, old Tivoli Brewery, and Cherry Creek.
