Baker was designated a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 and became a historic district in Denver 2000. Baker boasts the largest number of Queen Anne homes in Denver and continues to attract residents who love the historic homes, charm and urban location.
Baker has experienced a fresh makeover with new developments in recent years. South Broadway Street, in particular, is now home to some of the best restaurants and bars in Denver. It rivals downtown for weekend happy hour and bar spots.
