Set right at the foothills of the Rocky Mountain, Denver was originally founded as a gold mining town in the mid-1800’s. The gold supply was short-lived however, and the town became a supply hub for other mines in the nearby mountain regions. The town continued to grow at a rapid speed and eventually became the state capital. Around the same time, a rail line was built from Cheyenne, Wyoming to the western side of Kansas and traveled directly through Denver. This made Denver boom even more, as new people, supplies, businesses, roads, and more were developed in the capital city. After World War II, the city saw an even greater expansion with the introduction of skyscrapers. With this, Denver was a full blown city sprinkled with skyscrapers and surrounded by ever-growing suburbs.
