Built in 1892, the 175-foot tall Westminster Castle and hilltop historic landmark overlooks Denver with an exceptional view of the Front Range. It is part of the National Register of Historic Places as Westminster University. Because of its unique color coming from sandstone from the Red Rocks, locals refer to it as The Big Red Castle and The Pillar of Fire. Westminster Castle is located northwest of Denver near the intersection of 83rd and Federal.

History

Westminster University was first conceptualized in 1890 by New Yorker Henry T. Mayham who convinced the Denver Presbytery to build a Presbyterian University on land that he owned on Crown Point, the highest point in what was then Arapahoe County

Architect E.B. Gregory designed and laid the cornerstone for the university's main building, which was to be constructed of gray stone from the Coal Creek area. After delays in construction caused by a lack of funds, Mayham hired New York architect Stanford White to finish the design and oversee construction. White changed the main design element, the stone, to a red sandstone from the Red Rocks/Manitou area. White's design was completed by 1893: 160 ft frontage, 80 ft depth, three stories tall, with a distinctive 175 ft tall tower. The architectural style of Westminster Castle is an excellent example of Richardsonian Romanesque.

Today

Belleview Christian Schools still reside on the Westminster University campus which is home to Belleview Christian Childcare & PreSchool and Belleview Christian School. Although most of the teaching happens in newer buildings on the campus, classes continue in the historic main building which was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. (from Wikipedia)

Check out the incredible view from the top of Westminster Castle, as the city of Denver almost looks like an island. Even if you’re not able to tour the castle, the view from the street of the striking red sandstone building is worth the trip.

City Park Neighborhood Denver Homes For Sale Map

The Neighborhood

The City Park neighborhood has the same boundaries except for having Colfax Avenue as its southern boundary, which is two blocks south of 17th Avenue. Therefore, the entirety of the neighborhood is only two blocks wide, but about a mile long. The area in the southwest corner of the neighborhood consists of East High School and a green area called the City Park Esplanade, which in some ways extends the park south two blocks to Colfax Avenue. The eastern part of the neighborhood around Colfax Avenue (along with parts of the Congress Park neighborhood across Colfax) is also known as the "Bluebird District", for the Bluebird Theatre located on Colfax and the urban developments around that area. There is also a neighborhood called "City Park West", which is located just west of the park to Downing Street and commonly known as Uptown. It has the same southern and northern borders as City Park and has York Street as its eastern border.

City Park is a trendy area dominated by its namesake green space, featuring picnic spots, playgrounds, and lakeside trails. Within the park, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science has a planetarium, an IMAX theater, and temporary shows, while exotic reptiles and events draw families to nearby Denver Zoo.
