Denver Real Estate

Denver, North Carolina is a small southern town located at the east end of Lincoln County in western North Carolina. The area is rich with history that follows the development of the United States from it’s beginnings through to the present.

The history of the area dates back to before the revolutionary war to a time when the Catawba Indians lived along the eastern banks of the river that still bears their name, and the Cherokee Indians lived to the west. The first bold pioneers known to settle this area were Adam Sherrill and his 8 sons, who migrated from Pennsylvania in 1747, and John Beatty who settled here in 1749. Both the Sherrills and Beatty settled along the west bank of the Catawba near shoals in the river that made it possible to cross. These crossing points or “fords” were thereafter referred to as “Sherrill’s Ford” and “Beattie’s Ford”, names that still live on in the area to this day. The early settlers of the area were primarily Scotch-Irish and Germans that came from the north. By 1750 a Scotch-Irish settlement covered both banks of the Catawba river.

Today Denver sits on the west shores of Lake Norman, a very large lake created in 1962 when construction of the Cowans Ford Dam across the Catawba River was completed. Denver and Lake Norman are just a little north of Charlotte, the largest city in North Carolina. Charlotte is a fast growing “world class” city that is home to NBA and NFL teams, NASCAR racing, theaters, cultural centers and corporate headquarters for some of the largest financial companies in the world.
