When the city of Harman was founded southeast of Denver, the citizens could have had no idea of the changes that their little town would see in the years to come. After becoming part of Denver, then becoming a town dump, retail gold would rise from the trash in the form of the Cherry Creek Mall. There's very little of Harman left, but we'll explore its history before looking into just how Cherry Creek got so exclusive, with architecture and energy to spare. Join us for a 45-minute presentation at the Ross-Cherry Creek Library, with time afterward for general questions.
