Denver NC (Denver of the east) is located on the west side of Lake Norman and provides direct access to Charlotte down Highway 16 about 25 miles away. You can also head northeast and access Statesville in 25 miles or go northwest to Hickory in 30 miles.

In 1962, Duke Power built the Cowans Ford Dam, flooding the fertile farmland along the Catawba River "bottoms," the land which had attracted the area's first settlers.

Soon, weekend and summer "getaway" homes began to appear lakeside, and after a few years, these were replaced by more luxurious lake homes, as individuals began to move to the area to live near the water. Denver is now largely a bedroom community for Charlotte, NC.

With low taxes and more affordability, you can get more for your money in Denver compared to the towns of Cornelius, Huntersville, Davidson and Mooresville on the east side.

The west side of Lake Norman embodies a more relaxed lifestyle compared to the east side of the Lake. You can get out and play one of the semi-private golf courses of Verdict Ridge or Westport or join the Cowans Ford private course.

Denver is also home to several notable waterfront neighborhoods like: Sailview, Governor Island, and Westport. Enjoy a boat ride in Lake Norman and catch the beautiful landscape of Denver.
