Founded in 1885, the Montclair
neighborhood is one of Denver's
oldest -- and the first designated as a National Historic District. Montclair is named for its developer, the Montclair Town and Improvement Company. This proud little town fought to keep their independence, fighting the city of Denver's attempts to incorporate all the way to the State Supreme Court. Montclair lost, and was annexed by Denver in 1903.
Just five miles east of Downtown Denver,
Montclair is a self-contained community, offering plenty of shops, restaurants, and businesses along Colfax Avenue. After renting your Montclair apartment, head to Antiques Etc. and Myxed Up Creations to find unique décor. After shopping, enjoy lunch at the Blunozer Café.

Montclair Park contains the historic Montclair Civic Center, a playground, tennis courts, and horseshoe pits. Kittredge Park has a playground, ball fields, and walking/bike paths.
