History of the Bonnie Brae Neighborhood: In 1870, the land now known as Bonnie Brae was granted to the Kansas Pacific Railroad and eventually sold to farmers. The Bonnie Brae that we know and love today though really began in the 1920s when a Denver businessmen, George W. Olinger, saw great potential in the area. Inspired by a subdivision in Kansas City named Bonnie Brae, Olinger and his development company hired landscape architect Saco DeBoer to design the area. Unlike the grid system used in most other areas of Denver, DeBoer designed Bonnie Brae to focus on the beautiful land and nature in the area.
While the first few homes were built in 1923-1924, the depression delayed the construction of most of Bonnie Brae homes until the late 1930s and continued through the 1940s and early 1950s. Many residents appreciate this delay as it resulted in homes characterized as Art Moderne and the International Style, unique and exciting styles of architecture. As much of Denver's older neighborhoods are comprised of Neoclassic and Victorian-style homes, Bonnie Brae brings a fresh feel to the area.
Bonnie Brae Park: Also known as Ellipse Park due to it's elliptical shape, this small neighborhood green space is the located in the center of the neighborhood. Developed in 1936, this park is surrounded by homes of that era and gorgeous large trees.
