Denver

Denver, North Carolina is a small town located in the northeast corner of Lincoln County, in west central North Carolina. Yes, there really is a Denver in North Carolina! And it has a rich history.

History for Denver dates back prior to the Revolutionary War, when the Catawba Indians lived on the banks of the river which still bears their name, as does the next county to the north. Between 1747 and 1749, some of the pioneers who came to settle the area were Adam Sherrill with his 8 sons, and John Beatty. They settled along the banks of the Catawba near shoals in the river, where it was shallow enough to cross with a horse and wagon. The crossing points were called “fords” and names such as “Sherrill’s Ford” and “Beattie’s Ford” are still in use today.

Denver was originally called “Dry Pond” because of the swampy area, and residents wanted to make the area sound more attractive. They thought it might hamper chances for a railroad line with the name “Dry Pond”, so they asked the local school principal, D. Matt Thompson to suggest another name. Colorado was being considered for admission to the Union in 1873 and Denver was the territorial capitol. Mr. Thompson suggested changing the name “Dry Pond” to “Denver” to make the area sound more appealing and improve chances of obtaining rail service. In 1877, Denver was officially incorporated in the State of North Carolina.
