The neighborhood of Cory-Merrill was originally developed in the 1930s through the 1950s. The area originally consisted of mostly smaller homes on large lots, but many have been redeveloped into large, updated single family homes. The Cory-Merrill school has always been well respected for superior academic performance.

Bounded by Mississippi, I-25, University and Colorado, Cory-Merrill is offers lush and quiet living not far from downtown. Nearby Washington Park provides miles of recreational paths, lakes and gardens. Residents have easy access to attractions in Cherry Creek, and are close to the charming shops and restaurants of Bonnie Brae and Old South Gaylord.

The spacious grounds of the St. Thomas seminary were renamed the “John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization.” Currently, all ministries of the Archdiocese of Denver are headquartered on the John Paul II Center’s campus, located at 1300 South Steele Street in Denver in the heart of the Cory Merrill neighborhood.
