With the growing population and expanding middle class, Congress Park was platted into more than ten subdivisions between 1887 and 1888 and on March 11, 1889 the area was incorporated into Denver. At the time residence called the area Capitol Heights. The Congress Park neighborhood has been used by the city of Denver since the 1970s.
