Poets Row

Poet's Row is a group of seven residential apartment buildings in Denver's Capitol Hill, each named after an influential poet or author. Located on historic Sherman Street just a few blocks from the state Capitol, they were built starting in 1933, and are made up of primarily studio and one-bedroom apartments. Each building has its own unique style and character, from the Spanish-Colonial architecture of the Robert Frost to the Art Deco style of the Mark Twain, and all six buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Location

The official boundaries of Capitol Hill are Colfax, Broadway, 7th Avenue, and Downing. The following reasons make this community one of the hottest Denver neighborhood:

  • MID-PRICE HOMES.  Moderately priced, Capitol Hill is an area that deserves consideration for your next move.
  • CENTRAL LOCATION. If you’re looking for a true city experience, this is the place for you. As Denver’s most densely populated neighborhood, Capitol Hill attracts people who prefer walking to driving and love an urban environment without the skyscrapers. 
  • PARKS - Nearby Cheesman Park is a great urban escape, where you can go for a run, throw a Frisbee, play kickball, have a picnic, or just relax and read a book in the sun.
  • ECLECTIC NEIGHBORHOOD This is central Denver's most populous area.  One of the best things about Cap Hill is that it isn’t all city; it has a nice, neighborly side as well. 

Nearby Attractions:

Interesting tourist attractions including the gold-domed Colorado State Capitol acts as an anchor for this hilltop neighborhood, while the 210-foot-high French Gothic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception also serves as a focal point.
