The Facebook page looks back on Denver’s past is totally nostalgic

This morning I came across a Facebook page that I kept scrolling through. After three posts, I had to hit the like button.

The page titled Historic Denver has a few hundred photos from Denver and Colorado’s past that would fascinate anyone. Whether you’ve lived in Colorado for decades or recently moved to the Centennial State and are curious to see how far Colorado has come, you’re sure to enjoy this page.

Here are some of my favorite photos I saw this morning:

Stapleton Airport

Before Denver International Airport became one of the top five busiest airports in the world, there was Stapleton Airport. Stapleton Airport was quite small, but much closer to the Denver metro area.

Denver Amusement Parks

We all know Elitch Gardens and Lakeside. The Celebrity Fun Center was another amusement park in Denver from 1960 to 1994. According to Wikipedia, Walt Disney was one of the famous founders of this family entertainment destination.

University of Westminster

The building once stood in what could be considered a desolate part of the Denver metro area is now built up and quite busy.

Downtown Denver

The Mile High City has seen its fair share of growth and change.

Red Rocks Amphitheater

Red Rocks has undergone quite a transformation over the years.

Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos have come a long way over the decades. Here you can see the original Mile High Stadium.

Coors Brewery in Golden

Furr cafeteria. Faded away. But never forgotten.

Shakey’s Pizza is still in business. However, more in Colorado

The birthplace of what is now known as the Cheeseburger

The Jolly Rancher Factory

When I was a kid, we lived a short distance from the Jolly Rancher factory. The smell was intoxicating. The best flavor was when they made the Jolly Ranchers watermelon.

Lakeside shopping center

The mall is long gone and replaced by a large mall with a Wal-Mart.
