Title: Brenda Ames – Aurora, CO – “We Remember Welton Street”

Description: Five Points, the neighborhood where Welton Street is located, is one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods. Initially, it was made up primarily of German, Irish, and Jewish populations. The area was named “Five Points” in 1881 for the five-way intersection of 26th Street, 27th Avenue, Washington, and Welton Streets. From 1890 onward, Five Points grew into an African American community as many found work laying down track for railroad companies. It would sometimes be called "The Harlem of the West" for its rich jazz history. In 2002, Five Points was recognized as a cultural historic district. Today, with gentrification, the area has been labeled “the second most gentrified in the country.”
