LoHi – Just one of the many Chapters in the history of Denver’s Northside…
The story of LoHi really starts with the story of Highlands. The flood of 1864 put the Highlands on the map so to speak. The flood forced many people in the low lying areas to seek higher ground and many made the journey to an area that was found to be elevated from the flood waters and the perfect spot to re-settle.
North Denver has a long history with several different groups and a variety demographics have populated the area and over the years have called North Denver home. LoHi is part of that North Denver history.
