As a resident of 5390’, you’ll be part of a colorful history.
The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, or the Shriners, was created as the fun-loving alternative to its serious Mason counterpart in the 1850s. At that time, Americans were entranced by all things Moorish, especially a certain Arabic musical comedy that one of the founders, a well-known actor, modeled the organization after. The El Jebel (“The Mountain”) facility was built for Denver’s 5,000 Shriners in 1930 next to the Rocky Mountain Country Club.
Wondering about Willis Case? When this wealthy Denver stock broker, bachelor and avid golfer refused to marry his girlfriend in 1934, she put an end to him and then herself. Willis Case left $60,000 to Denver to build a golf course. The city purchased the El Jebel Rocky Mountain Country Club and adjacent Berkeley Park, creating the Willis Case Golf Course. So, now you know!
Multiple public and private pre-K through college-level institutions close by, including North High School and Regis University.
