The history of Denver began in the 19th century, when a group of a gold prospectors during Pike’s Peak Gold Rush decided to establish Montana City, a mining settlement on the bank of the South Platte River. Although it is considered as a foundation of Denver, Montana City was quickly abandoned . However, not long after that General William Larimer, staked a claim on the bluff overlooking the South Platte River and Cherry Creek and named the town site Denver City in order to win the favor of Kansas Territorial Governor James W. Denver. Although he did not succeed, the city kept on developing and after it donated 53 lots to the Leavenworth & Pike’s Peak Express, it became an important transportation hub in the region, as that allowed trains to cut the time of travel from twelve days to six. City’s importance was further asserted by Western Union in the 1863, when it choose Denver as its regional terminus. This continues on, as Denver is still considered to be an important part of American transportation net.
