Cherry Creek North: Around the Neighborhood

The neighborhood you see today had its roots in the 1870s as the budding town of Harmon. Over the next 100 years, it grew, taking up land adjacent to the creek, and became known as Cherry Creek. Today, this neighborhood has a 16-block business district, in which most of the restaurants, art galleries, salons, and boutiques are locally owned. Summer spells fun with events like the Cherry Creek Sneak annual footrace, farmer’s markets, and the Art Festival.
