Wall Street of the Rockies

—Seventeenth Street Denver, Colorado —

The legend says that Denver's early settlers, who made their camp on the banks of Cherry Creek, laughed at the Arapaho, a local Indian tribe, for making their camp inconveniently far from the water's edge.

The Arapaho warned the settlers of floods, but the settlers refused to believe that the tiny trickle of water in Cherry Creek could rise enough to damage their settlement.

In 1864, the waters rose, as they periodically do, and washed away the low-lying portions of the settlement.
