Barnum

Welcome to Barnum

In 1878, famed showman P.T. Barnum, of Barnum and Bailey Circus fame, purchased a 760-acre tract of land on the western edge of Denver—supposedly intended as an off-season winter retreat for his show. But while legend might say otherwise, Barnum never actually lived in the area himself, instead selling the bulk of the land to his daughter Helen, who was responsible for much of the initial development of the area along with her second husband, William Buchtel.

Today, the neighborhood of Barnum—bordered by Sixth Avenue, Federal Boulevard, Alameda and Perry Street—is one with a strong sense of community and one of the most affordable ones in Denver proper. As a nineteenth-century city suburb, Barnum distinguished itself as a haven for working-class families, and the proud, self-reliant spirit is one that pervades the area still today.

Along with a variety of house styles—everything from turn-of-the-century bungalows to mid-century ranches—the neighborhood features both a large park and popular recreation center. Barnum Park offers great views of the city skyline, along with tennis and basketball courts, and the neighborhood’s northern border of 6th avenue makes for quick escapes to the mountains or directly into the heart of the city.
