Olde Town is the city’s downtown district, with a turn-of-the-century Main Street Americana ambiance. It is the heart and soul of Arvada and has become a destination for locals and visitors, alike. With a diverse array of shops, boutiques, galleries, events, restaurants, breweries and a winery, Olde Town has something for everyone. After the discovery of gold, the town grew as railroad and trolley lines from Denver were built and agriculture thrived. Olde Town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is both a vibrant and growing district and a historic gem.
