Historical Larimer Square in Denver, Colorado

Larimer Square is one of Denver's first streets. It's also the city's first historic district, thanks to Dana Crawford and her preservation project in the 1960s. The Old-West buildings have been preserved and now serve as home to wonderful restaurants, bars and other venues just a few blocks from Union Station in Lower Downtown (LoDo) Denver.
