About Cole

Cole Map

The Cole neighborhood, which became part of the city in 1874 stretches north from Martin Luther King Blvd. (32nd Ave.) to 40th Ave and Walnut St.. and east from Downing St. to York St. Cole Junior High School and the neighborhood itself are named after Carlos M. Cole, a superintendent of Denver’s Public Schools who was instrumental in establishing junior high schools in Denver. More than half of the residential blocks were developed prior to 1900. Several historic buildings remain such as the cleanly designed red brick and sandstone Wyatt School on 3620 Franklin St. built in 1887 and named after its former principal George W. Wyatt.
