Denver Court

Summary
Dry lot homes

 
Description
In 1890, a group of investors from Colorado formed the Galveston Land and Improvement Company. They acquired 660 acres of land between Broadway Boulevard, the Gulf, 45th and 57th Streets and platted the area with city blocks bisected by alleys. Encompassing the southwestern third of the Groesbeck town plan, this work came to be known as the Denver Resurvey and comprises the current-day Denver Court/Fort Crockett Neighborhood. However, the district was almost completely destroyed in the Storm of 1900, and real development of the area did not officially begin until the 1920s after the grade-raising and filling in of McKinney’s Bayou.

Architectural styles in the neighborhood include Ranch, Craftsman, Modern, and Tudor Revival. The grid pattern of the residential areas is interspersed with trees and most single family homes face the street and are set back with front lawns. (From the 2011 City of Galveston Neighborhood Master Plan)

Denver Court is less than a mile from Seawall area shopping and dining.
