In 1902 the Town of Valverde was annexed to the City of Denver and became what is today the neighborhood of Valverde. The name "Valverde" means "green valley" in Spanish. The early developers saw the beautiful area buffering the South Platte River as a valley of flourishing green, natural vegetation, and trees.
Historical development in the neighborhood took place first in the area along Alameda Avenue, and east of Tejon Street. This area formed the nucleus of the old Valverde community, along with the northeastern part of Athmar Park and the adjacent industrial areas of Athmar Park and Sun Valley neighborhoods. Small truck farms flourished In the Valverde area. Farmers used their small trucks to take produce to the market place.
The industrialization of the area surrounding the river basin started with the selling of truck farms for redevelopment. The construction of I-25 in the mid-1950s and the West 6th Avenue Freeway in the 1960s had a major impact on the industrialization of the Valverde neighborhood. The highway and freeway had many interchanges -- on and off ramps at West 6th Avenue and Federal Boulevard, Bryant Street and West Alameda -- that provided good access to the area. This central location provided an excellent area for the building of ware- houses, offices, and light industrial uses.
