Berkley, Colorado’s history dates back to the brief Colorado gold rush of the 1870’s. Settlers discovered gold at the base of the Rocky Mountains and prospectors rushed to the area. Eventually a developer from Berkley Springs, Virginia named John Brisben Walker found himself in the Denver area. It was there what he established Berkley Farm, which at its peak was over 1,500 acres. Walker eventually partnered with Dr. William A. Bell to establish the Berkley Farm and Cattle Company in 1885 in order to manage and maintain the large farm. A few years later in 1887, Walker donated fifty acres for the eventual Sacred Heart College established by Jesuit settlers coming to the area. A year later, Walker sold his farm to Kansas City investors who subdivided and sold the land for residential development. The city is just on the northwestern edge of Denver and its proximity to the major city attracted settlers from the very beginning. At first the city was named North Denver and in 1898 the name was changed to reflect the original farm the stood there.
Today the city is a bustling suburb of Denver. Residents and visitors love the atmosphere that is uniquely Denver. The population in 2010 was just over 11,000 residents and that number continues to climb as the Denver metropolitan area continues to attract young people from across the nation.
