Denver History

Originally called Dry Pond, the now Denver community was named simply for a small pond which was known to dry up during the heat of summer and replenish when the rains returned.  The area was settled in the mid to late 1700’s by Scots-Irish and German settlers who lived off the land by farming and hunting.  For the longest time the community of Denver North Carolina was based around a local church, where any type of formal gathering of locals was held.

Among the first local industries were saw mills and grist mills, but eventually iron became the staple of the Denver area and iron making and ironworks facilities began to spring up.  Farming cotton remained a large part of the Denver area throughout the nineteenth century, while some workers began commuting to neighboring towns and cities for work at surrounding textile mills.  But it was the creation of Lake Norman in 1962 while brought major growth to the Denver NC.
