Denver – The Story Behind the Name:
One of the Lake Norman communities, Denver was originally called “Dry Pond” which referenced a pond that would dry up in the summer. The story being that the town was trying to attract attention for a stop along the railroad and the town’s residents changed the name thinking “Dry Pond” had a negative connotation. The school principal chose the name “Denver” since Colorado had applied to statehood in that year. Unfortunately with all their efforts the railroad did not pass through this town. With the creation of Lake Norman Denver could once again grow with the development of lakeside property. Still, the town remains quiet and laid back in comparison to the other communities along the banks of Lake Norman!
