Denver, the capital of Colorado, was established by a party of
prospectors on November 22, 1858, after a gold discovery at the confluence
of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River. Town founders named the dusty
crossroads for James W. Denver, Governor of Kansas Territory, of which
eastern Colorado was then a part. Other gold discoveries sparked a mass
migration of some 100,000 in 1859-60, leading the federal government to
establish Colorado Territory in 1861.
The Mile High City's aggressive leadership,
spearheaded by William N. Byers, founding editor of the Rocky Mountain
News, and Territorial Governor John Evans, insisted that the Indians must
go. After dispossessing the natives, Denverites built a network of
railroads that made their town the banking, minting, supply and processing
center not only for Colorado, but for neighboring states. Between 1870
when the first railroads arrived and 1890, Denver grew from 4,759 to
106,713. In a single generation, it became the second most populous city
in the West, second only to San Francisco.
Although founded as the main supply town for Rocky Mountain mining camps,
Denver also emerged as a hub for high plains agriculture. Denver's
breweries, bakeries, meat packing and other food-processing plants made it
the regional agricultural center, as well as a manufacturing hub for farm
and ranch equipment, barbed wire, windmills, seed, feed and harnesses.
