Trivia

  • Originally called Denver City, General William Larimer, a land speculator from eastern Kansas, named the town to curry favor with Kansas Territorial Governor James W. Denver.
  • Due to its important role in the agricultural industry of the plains regions, the city is sometimes called the "Queen City of the Plains".
  • Denver was selected to host the Winter Olympics in 1976, but Colorado voters struck down ballot initiatives to host the games, so they were moved to Innsbruck, Austria. Denver is the only city ever to decline to host an Olympiad after being selected.
