Ex-Patients Tubercular Home At 8000 East Montview - 1916 #EastColfaxNeighborhood History! Most of the residents living at the apartment complex Advenir Apartments at Stapleton located between Ulster and Trenton streets, between E. 19th Ave. and East Montview do not realize the building was built on the grounds of a sanitarium. The Ex-Patients Tubercular Home opened in 1916 at 8000 East Montview. The home’s cow barn was located at East 19th Avenue and Trenton Street. The home had 81 beds and existed for people who had been treated at other facilities (many of which had a maximum length of stay of only 6 months) but who were still suffering from TB and in need of further care. The Ex-Patients Tubercular Home closed in 1966. Here is a write up from the University of Denver archives. The Aid Association for Ex-Patients of Denver Sanatoriums was founded in 1908 by local Jewish businessmen to help provide funds for temporary housing, medical treatment, and moral and financial support for former Jewish tuberculosis patients trying to get back on their feet. Often interest free loans were provided to help the recovering consumptives begin modest business so they could ultimately support themselves. The Aid Association of the J.C.R.S. was incorporated in 1911. In 1916, the group bought five acres of land in Denver at 8000 Montview Boulevard and built a structure to house the ex-patients and provide assistance with vocational training. In the 1920s, it became known as the Ex-Patients' Tubercular Home, and its goal was “to provide a home and care for patients who have been directed from a tuberculosis hospital or sanatorium, who are in need of further treatment, and to rehabilitate those patients so they will again become self-respecting and self-supporting citizens.” After tuberculosis came under control in the 1950s, the Ex-Patients' Home became the Mental Health Center of America and closed its doors in the 1960s and was later razed. The property now is home to the Advenir Apartments at Stapleton. #EastColfaxNeighborhood #EastColfaxNBHD Discover Denver Survey History Colorado

With all the dispensaries in town, I thought Marley Liquor was a little bit comical, and very Colfax! They even have a boot to boot! (photo by Jonny B.)

March 15, 2018 from 5:30 - 7 p.m., DSST Stapleton High School, 2000 Valentia St., Denver. Based on your input in Denveright’s Blueprint Denver planning effort, city planners are working on a new approach to managing land use in our city. The new concept acknowledges that all places in our city are constantly evolving in pursuit of becoming complete in their own way — not just through enabling or limiting development, but through quality-of-life infrastructure like safe sidewalks, housing options, transit access, parks and open space. Diversity, affordability and good urban design/architecture are key to complete neighborhoods as well.
